Clinical Science Program Resources
The research environment at UTMB provides many opportunities for clinical research and support during training and career development. Clinical research resources include the Institute for Translational Science (ITS) Clinical Research Center (CRC), which has been awarded continuous NIH funding (UL1RR029876) for over 47 years and provides inpatient and outpatient facilities, experienced nursing staff, biostatistical and study design support, computer support, and various specialized equipment for human research. The ITS provides core resources in biostatistics, bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and community outreach. Additional research resources at UTMB include multiple Centers for Research Excellence, a Center for Aerospace Medicine and Physiology, the Institute for the Medical Humanities, Core Laboratory Facilities, and a Child Health Research Center.
Funding for Clinical Science students is provided from a variety of training grants and other sources. A Herzog foundation endowment specifically for students in this program can provide partial support that is awarded based on merit and need.
