Announcing UT CORNET Awards and Conference

Increasingly, scientific discovery is driven by researchers coming together from diverse disciplines to solve complex problems.

The Office of Research and Engagement is pleased to announce the new UT Collaborative Research Network (CORNET) Awards to stimulate interdisciplinary research on cancer. Researchers from across the UT system will meet at the UT CORNET Cancer Conference in early November to build partnerships to respond to this opportunity.

The Cancer Conference is designed to bring together cancer researchers from different UT campuses, allowing them to share their research interests, and catalyze new collaborative partnerships that will result in the submission of a UT CORNET Award proposal in Cancer.

Find more information about the awards at the UT Health Science Center website and in the UT CORNET request for applications.
