HSC lands coveted NIH translational research award
The Health Science Center has received a $26 million Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health/National Center for Research Resources, making it one of only three recipients in Texas. The award establishes the Health Science Center’s Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science, the entity responsible for realizing the vision that optimal research will improve health. The award is viewed as one of the most significant federal selections in the history of the Health Science Center and San Antonio’s biosciences community. Only 60 institutions ultimately will be granted Clinical and Translational Science Award status among 125 academic health science centers nationwide.
