Thanks to a generous donation for the Texas Trauma Institute, a critical piece of imaging equipment will become part of its life-saving arsenal.
In June 2012, UTHealth Development Board member Evan Katz, and his wife, Nicole, made a generous gift toward the purchase of an intravascular ultrasound to Memorial Hermann Foundation for the Texas Trauma Institute in support of trauma surgeon John Holcomb, MD, vice-chair of surgery and director of the Center for Translational Injury Research at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, part of UTHealth.
The Texas Trauma Institute is built on a foundation of a long-term collaboration between UTHealth Medical School and Memorial Herman-Texas Medical Center. The Institute brings together a world-class team of clinicians, researchers and educators armed with the latest in research and technology to save lives.
This institute is the first of its kind in Texas, which aims to streamline care and devote resources for innovative clinical research to improve the survival of victims of traumatic injury.
