Watch the State of Research address and Innovator of the Year presentation

Posted: January 24, 2017

Dr. Caroline Whitacre, senior vice president for research, delivered the annual state of research address on January 25, 2017. This year’s address was titled “Creative Partnerships, Meaningful Impact.”

When mathematics meets biology, dance meets science or astronomy meets philosophy–researchers can begin to look at the world in a different way. And sometimes, the most amazing results come from unexpected partnerships. Learn more about the surprising collaborations taking place at the university that don’t involve the “usual suspects.”

At the end of the address, the 2016 Innovator of the Year, Early Career Innovator of the Year and Student Innovator of the Year were named.
