This undated photo provided by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas shows Bill Gimson. Texas set out to cure cancer, putting $3 billion in taxpayer money on the table to prove it was serious. But a year of upheaval surrounding the nation's second-largest pot of cancer research dollars is winding to a close with a criminal investigation into the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas and the resignation of Gimson, the chief executive.
