Forum Funds Pilot Projects Testing Novel New Approaches
The Texas Biomedical Forum is an independent, non-profit association dedicated to promoting the life-saving work of Texas Biomed. Using money raised at its annual gala, the Forum sponsors one-year pilot projects that help scientists prove concepts that can lead to subsequent and often significant federal funding of research. With more than $200,000 in grants this year, selected researchers will be looking into gene splicing and immunity, CRISPR for gene editing targeting HIV, host-directed therapy for TB, a new field test for TB, and using molecular tools to understand more about the mechanisms of diseases spread by rodents.
