Our Home at The Texas Medical Center

The Texas Medical Center (TMC) is the largest medical complex in the world. TMC is at the forefront of advancing life sciences as the 8th largest business district in the US with 21 hospitals, generating $35B GDP. MD Anderson Cancer Center is the number one cancer research center in the US. With over 10M patients a year, it is the ideal location for proof-of-concept oncology and rare disease trials. TMC cancer researchers are supported by the $6B Cancer Prevention Institute of Texas fund (CPRIT), the second largest medical research fund in the US, only surpassed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Within this ecosystem, Nandi is working with scientists from MD Anderson Cancer Center, Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, University of Texas (UT) Houston and UT Southwestern to build a pipeline of oncology and rare disease biotechs.
