Changes Announced for Research with Unification of UT Tyler and The University of Texas Health Science Center

The University of Texas at Tyler named Steven Idell, MD, PhD as senior vice president for research and dean of the graduate school. Kouider Mokhtari, PhD has been named associate vice president for research and associate dean of the graduate school. Previously Idell was senior vice president for research and dean of the School of Medical Biological Sciences at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler (UTHSCT). Mokhtari was previously associate provost for research and scholarship for UT Tyler. The unification of UT Tyler and UTHSCT catapults the university into the prestigious Carnegie R2 classification, based on the combined research expenditures and the doctoral degree production.

Congratulations!

UT Tyler

UT Tyler was recently awarded a $112,500 grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordination Board Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant Program that is funded by the Governor’s Emergency Educational Relief Fund which, in turn, originates from the U.S. CARES Act of 2020. The program allows institutions to support displaced Texas workers who need to reskill or upskill to get back into the workforce and Texas students who have previously stopped out of higher education institutions without completing a postsecondary credential.

School of Education

The UT Tyler School of Education was recently awarded a $100,000 grant from the T.L.L. Temple Foundation.

Takova Wallace-Gay, Pharm.D., Clinical Assistant Professor

Dr. Wallace-Gay was recently awarded a $6,313.50 grant from the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors.

Volunteers Needed

Do you know what to do in the event of a life-threatening life emergency? If not, consider participating in a free Stop the Bleed® (www.StopTheBleed.org) designed by the American College of Surgeons, aimed at teaching non-medical by-standers how to respond to life-threatening bleeding emergencies that could happen from trauma, car wrecks, industrial accidents, and other unfortunate events. Our flyer has more information about this internally funded research project. If you are interested in participating in this class, follow this link or contact the research team at StopTheBleed@uttyler.edu

UT System Core Facilities Network Agreement Extended

The mission of the UT System Core Facilities Network is to support and enhance the quality and competitiveness of research and education throughout the State of Texas and beyond by providing researchers with access to state-of-the-art core facilities supported at UT System Institutions.  The network offers quick and secure access to the tremendous research products, services and expertise found throughout the Institutional Shared Resources. This Network is enhanced by its partnership with iLab Solutions which provides a core facility management system that enables researchers to examine offerings from the participating institutions, to initiate core facility service requests and equipment scheduling and to monitor usage tracking, billing and invoicing. The Network gives consumers a consolidated view of their recent activity in the system as well as the ability to search across all equipment, services and cores in the system. Facilities and equipment available at the participating institutions can be found using the search tool on the Network’s website.  An agreement that allows investigators at UT System institutions to use core laboratory equipment at the same rate charged internally at the participating institutions was recently extended until 2025.
