Funding Opportunities


Presidential Collaborative Research Awards 

This announcement marks a call for applications for a new program sponsored by the UTHealth Office of the President that is designed to promote collaboration and new research funding across the institution. The Presidential Collaborative Research Award Program is designed to provide resources to faculty  at our different schools who are working together on basic, translational or clinical research projects.

Since a goal of this program is to promote collaboration across schools, all projects must comprise  interdisciplinary teams with at least two PIs from different UTHealth schools. Support for any one project can be up to $100,000 per year for two years. The success of this program will be measured by the quality of data generated and the securing of additional public or private funding to continue the research.

A Letter of Intent (LOI) is required to help organize the review and is due Friday, September 2, 2016. Full applications are due Friday, October 28, 2016. Please submit both the LOI and full applications to:
