What a night! An Evening with DocStars 2022 was a huge success. We saw record sponsor support and ticket sales to the signature event hosted by The Cary Council and celebrated three promising UT Southwestern researchers, all while inspiring a higher standard in innovation. Since 2017, The Cary Council has awarded 15 substantial grants to early-career investigators to accelerate their work. These grants have attracted $9.4 million in additional funding for research spanning several important medical areas including breast cancer, brain cancer, genomic technologies, and infectious disease. Please enjoy these photos and videos from DocStars 2022, an amazing night of celebration and impact.
