Jamie’s Hope proudly funds cancer research at MD Anderson, accelerating the delivery of new cancer drug therapies from concept to patients in the clinic where the Center for Targeted Therapy is playing a critical role. The center, directed by Garth Powis, D.Phil., allows MD Anderson researchers and clinicians to coordinate all stages of the drug discovery and development process. The goal is to design more effective and targeted drugs with less toxicity.
Jamie would like to personally thank Dr. Tsimiberidou and ALL of the staff at MD Anderson…
“You were truly part of the inspiration which lead me to create this non-profit organization.” -Jamie Gilmore.
