ARLINGTON - Proposals are being sought for research to develop medical technologies in critical healthcare areas through a new, collaborative effort supported by Texas Instruments, the Texas Health Research & Education Institute, The University of Texas at Arlington and The University of Texas at Dallas.

The deadline for proposal submissions is Nov. 6. Details are posted at www.uta.edu/research/UTA-UTD-TI-THRE-jointprogram.

Funding priorities for the medical technologies program include healthcare information technology, community health and welfare and oncology among others listed here. Each proposal must include at least one research investigator from both UT Arlington and UT Dallas.

The maximum award for each project is $100,000 for one year, and successful proposals are expected to be announced in January 2010.

An initial $600,000 is available through the program to support medical technology research. The four sponsoring entities have each contributed $150,000 to the program.
