The Seminars in Translational Research (STRECH) series is a collaborative project among the:
- University of Texas at San Antonio’s (UTSA) Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI)
- University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio’s (UTHSCSA):
- UTSA-UTHSCSA Joint Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering (BME)
Both the RCMI and IIMS programs are supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The seminars bring together investigators from basic, clinical, and social sciences to highlight the bidirectional and multiple stages of the scientific translation of research discoveries from the bench to the bedside and to the community. It promotes the formation of multidisciplinary teams from both institutions, and other IIMS partners, that foster the development of innovative theories, approaches, and technologies in clinical and translational research.
Seminars are held monthly, alternating between the UTSA and UTHSCSA campuses.
