High funding levels and strong research programs show that San Antonio is a leader in the Biomedical Research fields.
University of Texas San Antonio Health Science Center (UTHSCSA) is a strong force in the life science market place. The university operates with an annual endowment of $405 million and is currently the fourteenth largest medical school in the nation. This campus ranks among the highest in the United States in terms of biomedical research, and has enacted a strategic plan to become “a globally recognized biomedical research university.”
The University of Texas, San Antonio has had a 34 percent increase in research funding over last year, and received more than $203 million in external funding.
UTHSCSA has an $11.6 million, five year contract with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, for a specific blood test to diagnose heart failure in attack survivors.
The center is also in the midst of constructing a 190,000 square foot facility that will house the following research programs:
- - Adult Cancer
- - Neuroscience
- - Healthy Aging
- - Regenerative Medicine
- - Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science
The research market here is open to new technologies and a great way to make an impact on-campus is to exhibit at the 10th Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ Event. This September 27th event is expected to attract 250 pre-qualified researchers.
Sign up by June 27th and save $250 with the early payment discount. We are also holding BioResearch Product Faire™ event at UT Austin on September 26th. Although this event is currently sold out, you can reserve a place on the wait list with the early registration price, and if space opens up you will be in line to participate.
