CPRIT is proud to introduce our 2023 Annual Report and review our fourteenth year as the state’s cancer-fighting agency.
Created by the Texas Legislature with overwhelming bipartisan support and validated by the people of Texas in two statewide votes, Texans entrust CPRIT with $6 billion to support groundbreaking research into preventing, diagnosing, treating, and surviving cancer. As a result, CPRIT is the second largest public funder of cancer research in the U.S., following only the National Cancer Institute.
In the CPRIT 2023 Annual Report, we place a special focus on our three-part mission to invest in the state’s research prowess, create and expand the life science infrastructure across Texas, and expedite innovation in cancer research and prevention strategies.
Be sure to again check out our Mission Map to get an understanding of how our grantees are achieving CPRIT's mission in all parts of the state. The spotlights included in the Mission Map show recent or ongoing CPRIT-funded projects and represent just a fraction of the impact CPRIT has in the fight against cancer.
The 2023 Annual Report includes a new feature: an interactive map that shows all CPRIT prevention program grants sorted by legislative district. CPRIT grants helped deliver over 9 million prevention services to Texans in all 254 counties and the map provides a visual representation of that accomplishment.
Since 2010, CPRIT has invested more than $3 billion in Texas’ universities, enterprises, and organizations. We are the largest state funder of cancer research and prevention in the United States.
