Research is not only an essential tool for gathering and disseminating new information, but also for educating. The 227,000-square-foot Biotechnology, Sciences and Engineering Building is one of the largest research-related educational centers in Texas. The building includes 70 research and instructional laboratories that facilitate interdisciplinary research and collaboration between scientists and engineers.
One of the CRTS goals is to "enhance diversity of faculty research in the College of Sciences." To accomplish this goal, the Center provides the tools for faculty to apply, through the various programs within the Center, for federal research funds. If you are a tenure-track faculty member at UTSA and would like to learn more about how to apply to get federal funds to develop your research, please visit the RCMI or SCORE program web site.
