Seminars in Translational Research (STRECH)

STRECH is a collaborative project between the IIMS/CTSA, the University of Texas at San Antonio’s (UTSA) Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) and the Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI). The seminars bring together investigators from basic, clinical, and social sciences to highlight the bidirectional and multiple stages of the scientific translation of research discoveries from the bench to the bedside and to the community. It promotes the formation of multidisciplinary teams from both institutions, and other IIMS partners, and fosters the development of innovative theories, approaches, and technologies in clinical and translational research.

Seminars will be held the third Friday of each month from 9:00-10:00 AM, alternating between the UTSA and UT Health Science Center campuses.
