Progress through Partnership
The organization is a collaboration of basic and translational scientists, researchers, clinicians and students in the quantitative biomedical sciences who help advance the region’s scientific progress through participation in joint training and research programs, utilization of shared equipment and core facilities, and the exchange of scientific knowledge.
Since 1990, the GCC has earned an unprecedented legacy for overcoming barriers between departments and institutions, increasing cooperation and collaborations, and training young scientists for future careers in the biomedical sciences.
The organization’s programs and core facilities are supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), John S. Dunn Foundation, and its member institutions.
