Funding awards for research at the University of Texas Medical Branch were up by $14.8 million in fiscal year 2019, yielding the highest amount of research funding for the institution since 2009.

“I think it means that UTMB has been really investing in our infrastructure for research, putting processes in place to improve the quality of proposals we send to places like the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Defense,” said Dr. Randall Urban, chief research officer at the medical branch.
