UNT Health Science
Center at Fort Worth
Institute for Cancer
The Institute for Cancer Research
at the UNT Health Science Center
was established in 1999 to study all
aspects of cancer. It contributes to
new approaches for cancer preven-
tion, diagnosis and treatment.
The institute explores new anti-
cancer therapies and cancer
prevention methods through a multi-
disciplinary team of researchers.
Among the ICR's members are basic
science, clinical and public health
faculty from the Health Science Cen-
ter, UNT at Denton, Texas Christian
University, the University of Texas at
Arlington, Texas Wesleyan University
and Texas Woman's University.
Ronald Goldfarb, Ph.D., a tumor
immunologist renowned in the field
of cancer research, was recruited by
the Health Science Center to develop
and lead the ICR.
This collaborative group of cancer
experts is gaining national recognition
as an emerging force in the fight
against cancer. The institute was one
of a handful across the nation to
receive an Institutional Research Grant
from the American Cancer Society.
According to the society's review
board, the ICR's application for fund-
ing ranked second among 26 applica-
tions from many of the major cancer
centers across the United States.
Other funding for research projects
comes from the National Cancer
Institute, the National Institute on
Aging and the Department of Defense
