We are educators, researchers and healers, collaborating to make our city UT Healthier. Today and tomorrow. We are The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio – now called UT Health San Antonio.™
We are an NCI-designated research center that moves laboratory discoveries into viable patient treatment options. Our research saves lives. We have been involved in the development of multiple cancer therapies now used worldwide. Our research scientists work with our clinical care physicians to develop cutting-edge therapies for our patients and their families. We train the next generation of cancer researchers through post-doctoral, graduate and college programs and high school mentorships.
