The University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHSCSA) at San Antonio is a high-level education and medical research center located in the medical district of San Antonio, about seven miles from our laboratory. UTHSCSA is a significant health science campus in South Texas with M.D./Ph.D. programs and research hospital as well as patient care. We have partially overlapping research interests, co-eductaional programs, joint reserach centers, and active collaborations with the faculty of Departments of Biochemistry, Cellular & Structural Biology, Microbiology & Immunology, Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology, and Physiology.
