  • Dr. Sarah Northam, professor of nursing.
  • Dr. Michael Odell, Roosth endowed chair and professor of science education; and

The PAID Program was enacted by the Offices of Academic Affairs and Sponsored Research as a mechanism to acknowledge the research efforts of faculty members by providing a monetary award. This innovative structure of the PAID program will enable UT Tyler to increase resources available to the university community as well as to increase contract/grant-based activity, while concomitantly rewarding faculty for outstanding research effort.
