Faculty Research Club

Faculty Research Club

The Faculty Research Club meets monthly on the last Thursday of each month.

The Faculty Research Club is intended to provide a social setting to stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations, promote informal discussions about research and disseminate information about campus resources to faculty. To stimulate conversation, several faculty members will give a 5-minute summary of their research and opportunities for collaboration.

Each club meeting is open to all faculty at Texas Tech and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Faculty members are welcome to invite post-doctoral scholars to help them develop research networks.
