Research is one of the pillars essential to the success of UTMB's mission to improve health for the people of Texas and around the world. UTMB has created a significant investment in the research enterprise, and we continue to the see the results. We receive more than 200 awards annually, valued at more than $160 million for sponsored research. We recently partnered with the Galveston Economic Development Corporation to establish a research incubator, providing investigators a facility in which to initiate commercial enterprises based on their research. We have seen discovery after discovery come out of our labs. The 1.2 million square feet we have dedicated to research includes increased lab space and room for animal research models. With this continued growth, UTMB is positioning itself squarely in the future of biomedical research, training the next generation of investigators.
