“THI and the Heart Makers” Take First at BioHouston Event

THI team Heart Makers Earn Firsts at BioHouston event

BioHouston held it’s 15th Annual Chili Cook-off at the Bayou City Event Center last week, and a team of THI researchers and support staff from the basic science, translational and clinical research programs participated in the festivities.

It was truly a great day for the THI team! Their theme for this year’s event – “Rock Your Heart Out, THI and the Heart Makers” – earned a record number of awards:

  • First place for team theme
  • First place for team spirit
  • First place for booth hospitality
  • First place for non-traditional chili with beans (…of course!)

In addition to fellowship, food, fun and entertainment, the Annual BioHouston Chili Cook-off creates an environment that stimulates interactions and promotes fellowship between the founding academic/research member institutions and other partners.

Thank you to the talented Amy Caivano in the THI Molecular Cardiology lab for coming up with another brilliant theme, complete with a well choreographed dance routine, and to the other THI cook-off team members!
