    A recent article by Paul J. Weber of the Asociated Press discloses serious management problems that threaten “the nation’s second biggest pot of cancer research dollars,” some $3 billion dollars at the Cancer Prevention and Reaearch Institute of Texas (CPRIT). Follow this link to the article:

    Action is need know to insure that that this funding is orotected and utilized effectively. The entire cancer community and especially those who live and work in Texas need to act before the investment is called into question. Texans should reach out to their elected representatives and demand oversight of the goal, objectives and funding process. The rest of us can reach out the professional community to ask that they take action. It seems that this Institute was established to stimulate economic development in areas related to cancer. In order to attain that objective, they need to establish a knowledge-based process for allocating their vast resources.
