The Cancer Bioinformatics Initiative: A UTSA/UT Health San Antonio Partnership
Funding Agency: NIH/NCI
Title: The Cancer Bioinformatics Initiative: A UTSA/UT Health San Antonio Partnership
Grant Detail: This program will provide opportunities for students and faculty at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), a minority-serving institution, to gain relevant experience by interacting directly with cancer center members at the Cancer Therapy and Research Center (UT Health Cancer Center) at the UT Health San Antonio, an NCI designated Cancer Center. The interaction will also provide UT Health San Antonio cancer researchers with needed computational analysis and modeling assistance from quantitative scientists across both campuses. Additional opportunities will be provided for intensive short courses/workshops for computational biology training aimed for a mixed audience of biologists and quantitative scientists is also planned.
