Mission Statement

The mission of The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston is to train and educate research scientists and scientist-educators, to generate new knowledge in the biomedical sciences, and to increase public understanding of science.

The educational objectives are achieved through programs leading to the Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Science degrees. These academic activities are carried out in research laboratories and classrooms under the guidance of GSBS faculty members from the schools of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, and the Texas A&M University Institute of Biosciences and Technology.

The Outreach Program and other public service activities of the faculty and students of the GSBS are aimed at educating the public about the biomedical sciences and health promoting an interest in careers in science, particularly among elementary and secondary school students.
