Redefining the R&D enterprise
In March, Vice Chancellor for Research Giroir gave a presentation to the BioHouston Breakfast forum. A pdf of his powerpoint slides is available online.
Dr. Giroir describes a vision for the future of biomedical research at the Texas A&M University System. The figure shown here, slide 11 from his talk, is perplexing, since we were not there and have no additional transcript or notes. Slide 11 appears between the sections on TIPS and the NCTM. Vision 1920 wonders if this means that our highly-ranked Poultry Science Department will be left behind, when the rest of the research enterprise is taken over by the System.
