UT Southwestern’s mission to promote health and a healthy society that enables individuals to achieve their full potential must extend beyond the core Dallas campus to maximize the greatest impact.

With the valuable support of community partners and generous donors, our charge to advance medicine and science and provide the best biomedical education possible requires exploring new territories – both literally in geography, and metaphorically in terms of discovering new and better ways to prevent and treat disease or to achieve lifesaving scientific breakthroughs.

Proof of that effort could be found this past year as the University’s clinical footprint expanded through the openings of UT Southwestern Medical Center at RedBird and a Cancer Care Outpatient Building. In education, expanding our reach meant launching a new school: the Peter O’Donnell Jr. School of Public Health, now in planning stages, as well as adding programs for college graduates to whet their appetites for science. Research discoveries with wide-ranging impact expanded our reach to help people at far corners of the world. Examples include discovering the cause of a sleep disorder in work that won a prestigious Breakthrough Prize, establishment of a nationally funded research center to study nutrition and obesity, and an investigation that determined the cause of Gulf War illness that could help thousands of veterans.

All this could not have been achieved without collaboration and support from the community. In this Year in Review, learn more about the amazing accomplishments of UT Southwestern in 2022 and the possibilities that lie ahead.
