Trouble Brewing at “The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas”

Coming off the success of the Pineywoods Cattle Baron’s event, along with October being noted for Breast Cancer Awareness month, timing could not be worse for the announcement coming from The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.

Reports emerging from its Austin Headquarters find at least seven scientists tendering resignation.  The core principals behind the scientists decision was focused squarely on the claim that the agency is putting its commercial interests of their $3 billion Cancer fighting program before science, alleging these projects, which are suppose to fund research, are actually being used to turn research into drugs, or other products to be sold on the open market.

The Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas was created in 2007 by Texas voters as part of a bond measure, and is said to have the backing of the governor and former Tour De France bicycler and cancer survivor, Lance Armstrong.

Only the National Institutes of Health command bigger dollars than Texas when it comes to Cancer research bucks.
