UTMB opened in 1891 as the nation’s first public medical school and hospital under unified leadership—already a pioneer. What began as one hospital and medical school building in Galveston is now a major academic health sciences center of global influence, with medical, nursing, health professions and graduate biomedical schools; a world-renowned research enterprise.
UTMB includes schools of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions and Graduate Biomedical Sciences; four institutes for advanced study; a major medical library; a network of hospitals and clinics that provide a full range of primary and specialized medical care; and numerous research facilities. UTMB is a part of The University of Texas System and a member of the Texas Medical Center.
Research is one of the eight pillars essential to the success of UTMB's mission, to improve health for the people of Texas and around the world. Research Services is a value-added partner in the UTMB research enterprise. We facilitate the UTMB research mission, from funding identification through project completion by providing research-specific resources and education; promoting the responsible conduct of research; and advising and assisting with administrative policies and regulations.
