These campus-crossing UT research teams are finding the future of health.
Research and discovery are a key part of Dell Medical School’s mission — and of The University of Texas at Austin’s vision of becoming the world’s highest-impact public research university.
From constructing “digital twins” to aiding robotic-assisted surgery and more, these eight pairs of collaborators are leading interdisciplinary teams to better health outcomes for Central Texas and beyond — and it’s only the beginning.
“There’s an enthusiasm and energy at UT and at Dell Med to be able to push the boundary and to be risky or try something different,” says Ann Majewicz Fey, Ph.D., professor at UT’s Cockrell School of Engineering. “There are clinicians that are willing to make the time to meet, and two seconds of a conversation can turn into something really incredible and take what you’re working on to a whole new level to realize the impact. It’s what drew a lot of people here, myself included.”
