Team Portal Members

WHO WE ARE
The Baylor College of Medicine portal team is an interdisciplinary team comprised of software engineers, bioinformaticians, and laboratory and research experts in the development and use of patient-derived xenografts (PDX). These three teams have jointly worked to design and implement a software portal which supports the management of PDX models and the dissemination of these models to the biomedical research community. The portal team efforts are funded with generous support from the state of Texas in the form of a Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT #RP17069) grant. Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding use of and or participation in this portal.
