Targeted Proposal Teams program presents awards to nine research teams

Nine interdisciplinary groups of researchers from Texas A&M University received as much as $250,000 each over two years from the university’s Targeted Proposal Teams (TPT) initiative.

Each TPT-funded team includes at least three researchers and is led by a tenured faculty member as its principal investigator.

TPT makes as much as $4.75 million available annually to encourage research teams across multiple disciplines to develop proposals designed to attract additional federal, state, private or commercial funding. In addition, each project addresses global challenges through technological innovation and developing next-generation research leaders.
