High-level marketing copy about this area that is understandable by users who aren’t scientists / are from the general public. Example from Salk - One thing’s for certain: we get older. But the biology of aging is still largely a mystery. As for getting sick as we age - we think that might be optional. At Salk, we are dechiphering the molecular and cellular causes of aging, and searching for ways to stave off Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease and other age-related ailments. We’re studying how the boyd heals itself, and we’re working on stem-cell technologies that may one day be used to replace organs damaged by injury and disease. They say aging isn’t for the timid, but we think bold science could help people stay healthy as they age.

Our researchers and other UT colleagues patented a high-tech pacemaker that measures cardiac performance and signals early warning of heart problems.

Dr. Julio Palmaz, who invented the world's first stent at UT Health San Antonio, is honored at the National Inventors Hall of Fame. 

UT Health San Antonio conducts studies involving use of medical devices, gene therapy and echocardiography (ultrasound waves) to improve diagnosis and treatment, and to minimize the incidence of heart attack and heart failure.
