Welcome to IIMS

The Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science’s (IIMS) mission is to integrate clinical and translational research and career development across all University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio schools and among our diverse public and private partners in South Texas. Clinical research studies are conducted with the participation and collaboration of human volunteers. Translational research studies move basic science discovery to patient-based applications and then out into clinical practice with the ultimate goal of human health improvement. Simply put, the IIMS will reduce barriers to research and stimulate the transformation of knowledge into improved health care.


Scientific Acknowledgement of Core Laboratories

The journal Biotechniques is now requiring authors to declare the core facilities that contribute to the research results reported in manuscripts before they can be accepted for publication. That is according to a December editorial in the journal that draws attention to the issues related to giving scientific attribution to core facilities.
