Michael R. Blackburn, PhD, Research Accelerator

Established in honor of Michael R. Blackburn, PhD, former executive vice president and chief academic officer at UTHealth Houston and dean of MD Anderson UTHealth Houston Graduate School, the Michael R. Blackburn, PhD, Research Accelerator fund provides the capacity to make strategic investments that drive innovation. Distributions from this endowment provide seed funding each year to advance novel research conducted by teams of students and faculty across UTHealth Houston, while the corpus of the endowment lives in perpetuity as a source of renewing funds to advance the health and well-being of our communities for years to come. 

A rich research environment serves as an essential training ground for students as they learn, develop, and refine the skills necessary to push the boundaries of medicine and health care. Your gift of any size to the Michael R. Blackburn, PhD, Research Accelerator allows us to continue Dr. Blackburn's passion, vision, and dedication to research, fostering advancements that have the potential to change lives and shift paradigms, bringing us closer to preventing and treating the most urgent diseases and disorders.
