Office of Research
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.
The Office of Research provides leadership, direction and management of research administration, infrastructure and services for faculty, staff and students. We oversee the operations of the following areas:
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.
