UTHSC, UTSA partner to bolster
In a ceremony at the Health Science Center, Presidents Cigarroa and Romo recognized Sen. Leticia Van de Putte and Rep. Robert Puente, the members of the Bexar County legislative delegation who authored H.B. 1716 and its companion bill, S.B. 728, during the 77th session of the Legislature. This legislation authorized creation of the SALSI.
SALSI is expected to stimulate San Antonio's $12 billion biosciences sector and, through a new graduate degree program in biomedical engineering, provide an educated workforce for companies in this sector. Co-directors are James Roberts, Ph.D., professor of pharmacology at the Health Science Center, and Joe L. Martinez, Ph.D., professor of neurobiology at UTSA.
