Methodist, UH system joining forces for biomedical research, clinical care

HOUSTON, Feb. 15, 2005 The Methodist Hospital (TMH) and the University of Houston System (UHS) have signed a 30-year agreement to jointly develop health service and education programs and to participate in research efforts and technology transfer, paving the way for the brightest minds to search for the next scientific breakthrough, the next vital treatment and the next important cure.

"Drawing on the University of Houston's excellence in science, we can accelerate our own research and significantly improve the quality of health care for Houstonians and increase biomedical knowledge for the world," said Ron G. Girotto, CEO and president of The Methodist Hospital System.

"It's become increasingly clear that no one entity can perform the level of sophisticated biomedical research required for continued excellence. Or, for that matter, provide the full range of programs needed to develop top-flight health care professionals. By joining forces, the University of Houston System and The Methodist Hospital are taking a vital and necessary step forward to meet the educational and health care needs of our community," said Jay Gogue, chancellor of UHS and president of UH.

The agreement calls for TMH and UHS to share facilities at both institutions for research, training and the education of health professionals, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and interns/residents. Faculty members of The Methodist Hospital Research Institute (TMHRI) and of UHS will be eligible for appointments at both institutions, which will bring some of the world's best scientists and top researchers to Houston and Texas.

An executive committee will oversee all joint activities. Arthur Vailas, vice chancellor and vice president for research at UHS and UH, has been named chairman of the committee. Dr. Michael Lieberman, director of TMHRI, has been named vice chairman.
