While sequestration hopefully has short-term impacts on research due to funding cuts to all federal agencies, Texas Tech can look at this time as an opportunity.
We are aware there will be less federal funding available. We should take this opportunity to promote partnerships with fellow researchers at Texas Tech, at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, other universities and with industry to maximize use of the dollars that are available.
Texas Tech is committed to growing these partnerships (see Transdisciplinary Research Academy). Foundations also represent an additional source of research support. Our Funding Resources website, The Foundation Center, and other NRUF award and research opportunities are available resources that can be useful.
