Seminars in Translational Research (STRECH)


UTSA’s RCMI program initiated and is coordinating the Seminars in Translational Research (STRECH), a joint project with the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA)’s Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science (IIMS), the UTHSCSA Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC), and the 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 purpose of the seminar series is to bring together basic and clinical researchers from both institutions to promote new multi-disciplinary collaborations that foster the development of innovative theories, approaches, and technologies in clinical and translational research.

Seminars are held monthly, September through May, alternating between the UTSA and UT Health Science Center at San Antonio campuses.
