Training Grants and Internships
Graduate education at UTMB began in the spring 1921 after a biological chemistry professor petitioned the President of the University of Texas (UT) at Austin to develop a Master’s degree program. This change marked an important step in the history of biomedical research at UTMB, as graduate students also began to serve as research assistants in an effort to increase research productivity.
Officially established as a separate degree-granting school within the UT System in 1969, UTMB’s Graduate School of Biomedical Science has grown to become one of the leading institutes of higher education in biomedical sciences in the country, and has garnered a significant number of federal and private fellowships and institutional training grants.
To assist pre-doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in developing their expertise in a specialized subject, the GSBS offers outstanding leadership in biomedical investigation:
