What: Translational research initiative reception for Houston Methodist.
Where: The home of Sabiha and Omar Rehmatulla.
Who: Hosts and homeowners the Rehmatullas; co-hosts Maria and Neil Bush; COO of the Houston Methodist Research Institute Ed Jones; keynote speakers and physician-scientists John Cooke (the Joseph C. “Rusty” Walter and Carole Walter Looke Presidential Distinguished Chair in Cardiovascular Disease Research), Phil Horner, and Brad Weiner; Kelli and Eddy Blanton, Lorraine and Larry Jacobs, Pam Roberts, Bentley Fondren, Elizabeth Tilney, and Tim Delgado.
PC Moment: Key supporters were invited to an intimate gathering to hear about Houston Methodist’s plan to accelerate medical breakthroughs from the lab to bedsides. The Houston Methodist Translational Research Initiative blends the work of traditional physicians with those (such as Horner, the scientific director of the Center for Neurogeneration, and Weiner, professor of clinical orthopedic surgery, who researches bone regeneration) in the lab, a signature mix of three different fields represented by three different doctors involved with the same concepts of regenerative medicine, benefactors of the TRI.
