All centers and institutes now under HIT
All UNTHSC research centers and institutes now will be included under the umbrella of the Health Institutes of Texas (HIT). The reorganization supports HIT’s mission to translate public health information and basic research into new models of health care delivery and positions HIT for more funding. See the new organization chart for the list of centers and institutes.
To facilitate HIT’s growth, Jackie Williams has been named program coordinator for the Health Institutes of Texas. For more information on HIT, contact her at ext. 2460.
