HSC campus closed on Tuesday, January 31 due to inclement weather


Mother Nature is determined to remind us it’s still winter in Texas!

Due to inclement weather, our campus will be closed for all in-person work and student events on Tuesday, January 31st.

HSC team members who have the ability to work remotely should do so today.

If your job is not conducive to working remote, please contact your supervisor as you will need to use “emergency leave related to weather” on your timesheet. This will be coded as “WCEMG–Leave–Weather Closure–EMG” and the hours should reflect your actual scheduled hours you were expected to work today.

Students should contact your professor(s) and/or follow guidance provided by your respective program regarding classes.

The Gibson D. Lewis Library will remain accessible to those with an HSC ID badge. Library resources and services are available 24×7 through the website.

Your safety is always our primary priority! Please stay warm and be careful as we get through this cold snap.

Prostate Cancer Foundation: Request for Team Science Applications


Letter of Intent due March 10, 2023

The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) is pleased to announce a Request for Team Science Applications for PCF Challenge Awards for investigations of metastatic, lethal prostate cancer. These awards will be funded depending on the level of innovation in applications received. PCF seeks high-risk, currently unfunded projects from academic institutions around the world. We especially encourage applications on prostate cancer disparity research that will help to define the origins of differential outcome for prostate cancer patients in men of under-represented populations, including those focusing on biology or healthcare access policy.
