Cancer Prevention Research & Institute of Texas (CPRIT)

Areas of interest include laboratory research, translational studies, and population-based and/or clinical investigations. In that cancers arise from a large number of derangements of basic molecular and cellular functions, which, in turn, cause many alterations in basic biological processes, almost any aspect of biology may be relevant to cancer research, more or less directly.

The purpose of this program is to support and improve coordinated systems of care to address the needs of maternal, infant, and child populations that are at risk for or experience exposure to lead. A Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN) will be implemented with 10 state or territorial teams with the goal of decreasing maternal and child morbidity and mortality associated with exposure to lead. By the end of the project period, participating teams will show an increase in the number of infants and children that have access to a system of coordinated care to address their needs as a result of exposures to lead.
