We are very lucky in The Woodlands, Texas to live with some of the best medical researchers in the world as our friends and neighbors. When the Woodlands was created in 1974, founder George P. Mitchell immediately began work encouraging Medical Researchers to find a home in the area.
Today, residents are blessed with a number of different institutes including Memorial Hermann, St. Lukes, MD Anderson, Houston Methodist, and more.
MD Anderson Cancer Research Center is a top ranking cancer treatment and research firm. They have multiple locations in and around the Houston Area. However, The Woodlands is home to their widest range of treatments and support services. This includes the latest clinical trials, genetic counseling, rehabilitation therapy, and even clinical nutrition.
MD Anderson offers the largest number of clinical trials in the world, numbering over 1,000 different programs. They work with patients to determine if they are elligible, and discuss their varying options. They even offer an online database for those patients interested in participating.
