UT Southwestern Gets $2 Million Recruitment Grant To Lure California Researcher

UT Southwestern Medical Center landed a $2 million state grant to recruit a doctor from the University of California, San Francisco who will be placed on a tenure track should he accept the position.

Dr. Luke Gilbert, a postdoctoral scholar of cellular molecular pharmacology at the UCSF School of Medicine, was recommended to join UT Southwestern by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, better known as CPRIT. He is one of six researchers the state pulled into its orbit using $26 million in grants.

None have yet agreed to come on, but the institutions—UTSW, Houston’s MD Anderson, UT Austin, and Baylor College of Medicine—have the state’s blessing to negotiate using the amount for the grants.
