As the first academic health center in Texas and among the oldest in the nation, the University of Texas Medical Branch has helped define health care for generations. Throughout its distinguished history, UTMB has provided Texas a diverse and highly skilled health professions work force, advancements in the understanding and treatment of illness and injury, and a leading source of medical care for patients from throughout the state. Today, despite challenges posed by Hurricane Ike, UTMB remains a home of continued educational, research and clinical excellence, committed to ensuring better health—and a better life—for the people of Texas and beyond, well into the future.
Medical research at UTMB delves into a broad range of promising topics that often have immediate application to patient care. In addition, in 2008, it opened the first national laboratory in Texas - the Galveston National Laboratory for the safe study of infectious threats to human health.
