During the third quarter of FY17, in addition to the funding of projects from the federal government, we saw increases of awards from non-profit, for-profit, and foreign organizations to support our research enterprise. This is encouraging as we continue our momentum towards the Top 25.
One particular project of interest during this quarter was awarded to Uma Rao, Betsey R. Bush Endowed Professor of Behavioral Health and director of UT’s Center for Behavioral Health Research. Rao submitted a proposal to the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities to investigate the “Ethnic Influences on Stress, Energy Balance and Obesity in Adolescents.” This research will be beneficial in developing future programs to assist individuals with weight control interventions and obesity prevention.
