Identifying best practices in public policy for the LGBT community. Leveraging the “autism advantage” to fuel workplace innovation. Understanding the complexity of life at the single-cell level. These are just three of the 15 exciting interdisciplinary concepts to be explored by the 2017 recipients of Vanderbilt University’s Trans-Institutional Programs (TIPs) initiative.

These research projects bring together more than 140 faculty members with graduate and undergraduate students from all 10 schools and colleges, creating multifaceted teams to approach complex challenges.

HP faculty members Muktar Aliyu, Gilbert Gonzales, and Marie Griffin among those chosen.
