Advance our research

Our faculty researchers are discovering new ways to more quickly diagnose and more effectively develop therapies for age-related illnesses like Alzheimer’s, chronic diseases such as diabetes, debilitating vision disorders, and more.

Your gift in support of research projects can make an exponential impact at UNTHSC. These funds represent one of our greatest areas of need. Young investigators launching research careers or seasoned investigators exploring new research directions require funds to apply for initial data collection and hypothesis testing.  A seed grant of just $25,000, or any amount, can prove invaluable, enabling our researchers to compete successfully for much greater funding from federal and private sources. Over the last seven years, seed grant awards have generated a 10:1 return on investment based on future external awards received by recipients.
