USA Collaborations

Awards for collaborative research in areas of shared interest/strength between UTHSC and other Mid-South universities.

Aiming to create a Phase 3 CORNET collaborative to encompass each of the six areas of Excellence designated in the Operational Strategic Plan for Research.

UTHSC/UAMS Substance Abuse


UTHSC/Southern Research in Drug Discovery & Development

Aims to launch drug discovery programs that are based on new and unique biology of disease that will fill significant unmet medical needs.

This initiative should be viewed as much more than a mechanism for seed money for future funding opportunities – it is a unique opportunity for developing a broad collaborative program in drug discovery that will yield the generation of new intellectual property (IP) and patents, and the establishment of new academic-industry partnerships that could lead to the founding of new companies.
