HOUSTON- Gov. Rick Perry was diverting from the GOP presidential trail for a home state appearance as the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is announcing a new facility in
Houston.

Perry on Monday was joining officials from the medical school, which is part of Houston's famed Texas Medical Center, to unveil the new Institute for Applied Cancer Center.

It's to be directed by Dr. Giulio Draetta, who's been chief research business development officer and deputy director at the Harvard University-based Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer
Science.

The Belfer Institute's director, Dr. Ronald DePinho, in September took over as president at MD Anderson.

DePinho's wife, Dr. Linda Chin, who was scientific director at Belfer before joining the MD Anderson faculty, will assume a similar post at the new Houston center.
