SALSI Clusters in Research Excellence

The global issues and challenges that research institutions are working to address are complex and occur at the intersection of disciplines. In order to make advancements in research there must be an integration and convergence of disciplines. The San Antonio Life Sciences Institute (SALSI) solicits applications for participation in the FY2015 Clusters in Research Excellence program. This program aims to develop strategic research clusters bridging The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (HSC) over a 12 month period through capacity building and collaborative, interdisciplinary research. To this end, SALSI will establish and support two institutionally driven Clusters of Research Excellence in key thematic areas of strategic importance. Clusters will be expected to enhance collaboration, expand interdisciplinary research capacity, and significantly raise the international research profile and competitiveness of both institutions.

As clusters will be expected to foster cutting-edge research of national and global impact in areas of major significance, SALSI has identified six overarching thematic areas. These areas capture the breadth of research and scholarship between the two institutions and are recognized as established areas of research excellence. It is expected that the projects will include interdisciplinary collaboration with the main focus on a Research Area of Excellence.

Research Areas of Excellence:

      • Neurosciences
      • Regenerative Medicine and Drug Discovery
      • Big Data Analytics in Health Care
      • Advanced Materials
      • Immunology and Infectious Diseases
      • Public Health Policy

SALSI expects to fund two Clusters of Research Excellence with approved joint budgets up to $300,000 each. It is anticipated that two projects will be funded for a grant performance period of September 1, 2014 – August 31, 2015.
