Adjoint Faculty: Texas Biomedical Research Institute


 

The Texas Biomedical Research Institute (TBRI) is a private research institute focused on lifestyle and infectious disease research. It is located on a 200-acre campus and houses multiple Biosafety-Level 3 laboratories and one of the few Biosafety-Level 4 laboratories in the United States. Research projects are targeted to AIDS, TB, hepatitis, malaria, hemorrhagic fever viruses, parasitic infections, and many other infectious diseases. Seven principal investigators from the TBRI hold adjoint faculty appointments at UTSA and are active members of the UTSA CMB Ph.D. program faculty. CMB Ph.D. students are able to pursue their doctoral dissertation research in any of these labs, which will also expose them to the subspecialty of Infectious Disease and working in a research institute setting.
