On June 1, 2018 Dr. Joseph Pancrazio was appointed Vice President for Research. He brings expertise in conducting and overseeing interdisciplinary collaboration one of the hallmarks of the UT Dallas research enterprise. This includes research funding, grants and contracts; campus research facilities and information systems, technology commercialization and licensing; compliance and safety; and the institutional review board, which approves research involving human subjects.
We have an opportunity to engage in research development, such as fostering interdepartmental, interschool and even cross-institution collaborations. Collaborative research is an important approach to catalyze our efforts going forward.
