Keeling Center for Comparative Medicine and Research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
The mission of the Keeling Center is to eliminate cancer and allied diseases by developing and maintaining specialized programs in animal models, research and education. Research at the Keeling Center has led to the development of synthetic peptide-based candidate vaccines for the prevention and treatment of AIDS caused by HIV, and for the treatment of cervical precancerous lesions caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses.
The Keeling Center provides core research and laboratory support for biomedical research projects both within and outside the MD Anderson research community. There are approximately 150 faculty and staff at the Bastrop location, which include veterinarians, animal care staff, basic scientists, research technicians and administrative staff. The facility offers training opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and veterinary medical students from a number of universities throughout the United States.
