Discovery to Improving Health
Research resides at the core of any great university. At TTUHSC, research thrives
across schools and disciplines. Our faculty, staff and students continually win new
research grants and awards to promote the prevention of disease and the treatment
of illness. It’s research that can be directly applied to patient care in Texas and
to the world beyond.
As cancer continues to be among the leading causes of death worldwide, TTUHSC is diligently working to reverse this statistic by making cancer research and treatment focal points of our university.
Aging & Pain – Promoting healthy aging through cutting-edge research and community outreach programs are at the forefront of TTUHSC’s endeavors to address age-related neurological diseases and pain.
Research with the goal of creating an optimal environment to find novel cures for diseases that recognize no human-made borders, TTUHSC researchers work to apply the world’s best science to fight world’s worst diseases.

Donate to Research at TTUHSC
Without research, advances in medicine will stop, but your donations can continue the advancement of groundbreaking research at TTUHSC. With each new discovery, our research will fuel innovation, prevent disease, and lead to better patient outcomes.
My laboratory is investigating the immunological mechanisms responsible for the tissue
damage observed in the inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis)
and in graft vs. host disease. A major goal of our research is to translate our scientific
discoveries into new therapeutic strategies to treat these immunological disease.
