The Center for Research and Training in the Sciences (CRTS), previously known as Center for the Advancement of Life Sciences (CAS), was established within the College of Sciences (COS) in June 2005.
The mission of the CRTS is to promote Science, Research, and Education and the center coordinates and administers programs related to all scientific disciplines. Currently, the center oversees a diverse group of research and training programs with participants from various disciplines within UTSA. These participants include graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows.
What can CRTS do for you?
- If you are a student interested in gaining research experience, CRTS might be able to help you.
- If you are interested in teaching and would like to earn your teaching certification at the same time as you earn your College of Sciences Degree, CRTS might have the answer to your needs.
- Perhaps you are a Tenured/Tenure track UTSA Faculty needing assistance with research funding; CRTS might be able to help.
Please visit the programs site to learn more about our programs and how they could benefit you. Every year these programs provide millions of dollars of funding support through scholarships, stipends, and grants. You can also contact the Program Administrators for further information. A listing of the CRTS personnel and contact information is on the directory page.
