Future of the TRI
Plans for the TRI in 2016 include raising an additional $2.5 million that will again be matched for a $5 million philanthropic investment in the most promising research projects. In addition to another call for RFPs (Request for Proposals), the TRI External Advisory Board will review submitted projects quarterly and invite some applications to be resubmitted with additional information. The Board also will provide periodic progress reports to Founding Members and TRI contributors.
In addition, Houston Methodist will host four to six TRI events throughout 2016 to introduce the initiative to more friends from the community and will plan an annual meeting in the fourth quarter.
