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.
The GCC welcomes its 8th and newest member, Houston Methodist Research Institute, effective July 1, 2022.
32nd Keck Annual Research Conference, October 21, 2022
Theme: Structural Biology: Past, Present and Future. Location: Bioscience Research Collaborative, 6500 Main St., Houston
This year’s conference focuses on major advancements in structural biology with a specific emphasis on innovations in cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM). It brings together experts in the field under one roof in Houston to discuss the current state of the art in cryo-EM, highlighting breakthroughs in structural biology research and its impact on drug discovery. The conference and poster session will also highlight the outstanding research being done by predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees in the eight inter-institutional training programs administered by the GCC/Keck Center.
