Innovative Research at UTMB
Since the beginning, UTMB has been at the forefront of medical research, with researchers studying the viruses common to a sub-tropical island climate. Today, our world-renowned investigators generate a portfolio exceeding $160 million, and work in state-of-the-art laboratories developing diagnostic tools, cures, and vaccines to benefit the global community. This is made possible through, in part, by our generous benefactors.
