Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Alumni

In 1969, the University of Texas Board of Regents permitted the establishment of a degree-granting Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences on the UTMB campus. Today, the program has expanded to more than a dozen graduate programs, four institutes, and over 10 research centers. GSBS graduates are currently found in prestigious and influential positions in universities, government, and industry.
