The Comet Corner Series, created by the UT Dallas Office of Research and Innovation and in partnership with the schools across our campus, hosts chats with some of our notable alumni to hear how they have taken their research out into the world and made #UTDResearchImpact. The Humanities and Medical Sciences are naturally and deeply entwined. The science of medicine seeks to find ways to heal and extend human life, while the Humanities tend and cultivate our souls to provide meaning in our lives. The best world is one in which STEM is intimately entwined with the narrative, creativity, and beauty of the Humanities.
