The Department of Biology at UTSA offers undergraduate and graduate students research opportunities in four principal areas: Cell and Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Immunology, Neurobiology, and Plant Biology. The Department also encourages collaborations among different research groups, across campus, and with other institutions.

The Department is committed to conducting advanced research to increase the fundamental knowledge base, to train the next generation of biologists for industrial/academic careers as well as scientifically literate citizens, and to assist in educational, technological, and economic outreach to San Antonio and South Texas.
