Founding Members

Generous benefactors have helped the TRI launch its third phase after securing $20 million for translational research projects. The Houston Methodist Research Institute relies on 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.
