School of Biomedical Informatics
Dean's Excellence Fund
At UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI), we advance medicine by addressing biomedical research and health industry problems related to prevention and treatment, quality of care, patient safety, and service delivery efficacy through sophisticated information technology, state-of-the-art informatics research, health IT workforce education, and training future teachers and scientists.
A Dean’s Excellence Fund was established to provide the dean of the School of Biomedical Informatics a critical operational advantage. No other funding—be it philanthropic or grant-related—offers the school’s chief administrator discretionary monies that can be used to support the school's highest priorities. These unrestricted, current-use funds are essential to the success of diverse initiatives that range from faculty recruitment and retention, student scholarships and infrastructure development to seed and bridge funding for research and unfunded capital equipment purchases. Your gift to the SBMI Dean’s Excellence Fund will help ensure the vitality of the school by allowing its leadership the latitude to respond to fluctuating needs and emerging opportunities.
