Generous benefactors have helped the TRI reach its goal of raising a $10 million philanthropic pooled resource. These Founding Members have made a financial commitment to Houston Methodist and receive invitations to periodic TRI updates and are introduced to new projects. The Houston Methodist Research Institute relies on the Founding Members for guidance and perspective during reviews with scientists and executives. In addition, members are invited to our annual Founding Members Meeting where the most promising medical breakthroughs are showcased.
