Neuroscience/Neurology

In the neuroscience realm, including basic science and clinical research, the best resource for our campus is the Neuroscience Institute and the participating faculty listed on the Institute’s website: http://www.uthsc.edu/neuroscience/faculty/. The ongoing research projects of the faculty can be screened here and are regularly updated. You can harvest and compile the sort of dababase you are after from this site. Beyond that, I think detailed write ups by chairs and deans are likely to be of limited use as they will soon become outdated due to the rapidly evolving nature of research in a given lab.
