Rouce Team Awarded $1.2 Million National Cancer Institute Grant


A team of researchers at Baylor College of Medicine's Dan L. Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center, led by Dr. Rayne Rouce, was awarded a $1.2 million P20 grant from the National Cancer Institute to partner with Texas Southern University, a Historically Black College and University, to create the BCM/TSU Collaborative Union for Cancer Research, Education and Disparities (CURED). 

The program, co-led by Dr. Rouce and Dr. Veronica Ajewole, will expand on existing collaborations between the two institutions to create an optimal environment for cancer research, education, community outreach, career development, and promoting diversity in the biomedical workforce.
