UT Health San Antonio is committed to scientific discovery. Our milestones demonstrate that we set the standards for excellence and believe in translational science. Through our network of collaborations we connect with researchers across disciplines throughout Texas and the nation.
Network of Partners
Our partnership network includes centers and institutes housed on campus at UT Health San Antonio, health care systems, industry and military involved in basic and applied research.
“The VPRs at both UT Health San Antonio and UTSA recognized the need to introduce the element of translational research. And, there’s a mission both from the federal government and local Texas interests to increase funding for translational efforts. At the Center for Innovative Drug Discovery we are conducting research on different disease states: neurodegeneration, cancer, aging, obesity, diabetes, vascular disorders.” -Matthew J. Hart, Ph.D.
