Governor Perry has taken time off the campaign trail to announce a new cancer institute at one of the top hospitals in the nation.

Perry announced the creation of the Institute for Applied Cancer Science at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This new addition is aimed to help discoveries in science become actual therapies.

The Institute for Applied Cancer Science will help to integrate academic and pharmaceutical science to develop new medicines.

Perry said “In Texas, we’ve had our sights set on wiping out cancer for some time, and this new institute brings us one step closer to destroying it in our lifetime.”

An initiative led by Perry in 2007 resulted in the creation of the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, funding more than 350 awards for cancer research, totaling more than $570 million.
