With Gratitude From the President
Changes to the brain from injury, disease, or the natural aging process can profoundly impact a person’s life. At UTHealth, our experts work to better understand the brain, develop and deliver innovative treatments, and prepare the students who will follow in their paths.
I am pleased to share this year’s Out in Front: Brain and Behavioral Health publication, which highlights some of the ways our students and faculty are advancing this field of medicine—from COVID-19’s compounding psychological impact of trauma, to developing stem cell treatments for a wide range of disorders and injuries, to applying artificial intelligence to bridge the gap between data and patient care.
These advancements continue in the midst of a pandemic that has created one of the most challenging health care environments of our time. With courage and the resolve to push forward, we are on the frontlines of innovation in patient care, research, and education. This work is possible, in large part, because of the generosity of donors like you, who have shown that now—as ever—you stand with us for healthier lives, families, and communities.
For everything you have done for UTHealth and the people we serve, we simply say: Thank you.
