Small Animal Imaging pilot grants


The Small Animal Imaging Facility is offering pilot grant awards to facilitate the collection of preliminary imaging data: CT, PET, SPECT, and MRI images. The SAIF pilot grants program is an internal funding mechanism designed to (1) provide imaging access to faculty whose project is not yet externally funded, (2) support the addition of imaging data for current projects, and (3) encourage the use of SAIF resources and stimulate research collaborations. Faculty who receive support through this program are expected to collect preliminary data to submit a research proposal for extramural funding. Faculty can submit only one application per funding cycle.

Award Information:
• Grant awards will range from $2,000 – $5,000. Award amounts are contingent on the number of applications received this cycle.
• Duration of the funding will be through the end of August 2023 (no carryovers are permitted).

Cultivating Protective Libraries: An Introduction to Public Library Social Work – free webinar Wed, July 13, at 10am (sponsored by NNLM Region 3)


The Network of the National Library of Medicine Region 3, housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library, would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our monthly webinar series, Health Bytes with Region 3.

This monthly 1 hour series focuses on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

In 2009, San Francisco Public Library created the first dedicated, full-time position for a helping professional. Since then, library social work has spread to over four dozen systems around the United States. This session will introduce library social work, its history, and emerging best practices. We will consider the library as a protective factor in the lives of vulnerable populations. Special attention will be paid to the need for person-centered, trauma-informed lenses into the university education of future librarians.

Change coming to Daily News


Need to share an announcement in Daily News? It’s easy! Did you know you can create, edit and publish your own announcements by clicking the link at the top of your Daily News email and logging in with your HSC user ID and password? When you click through, you’ll see a button at the top left to “Add an Announcement.” Follow that button, and create your announcement!

You can choose from any section other than Campus News, which is reserved for broad-based HSC News or UNT System announcements. After making your selection, you can set the date(s) (up to five dates at once), add hyperlinks, and make edits as needed. If you need to make edits later, simply log back in, and use the search function to find your announcement.

Starting on July 11, the deadline for posting “next-day” Daily News announcements will change to 5 p.m. weekdays. Any announcements posted after 5 p.m. will appear two business days later. For example, an announcement posted after 5 p.m. Monday will appear in Wednesday’s Daily News. This will give our editors an opportunity to review and prioritize announcements, and to contact you with any questions.

Any announcements posted during the weekend will appear in Daily News on the following Tuesday unless there is a university holiday on Monday. In that case, the announcement will post on Wednesday.

Thank you for your support – we look forward to working with you on this Daily News improvement!
