UTSA wins $500,000 to develop biosensor and regenerative medicine Ph.D. program
Date:2/18/2009

San Antonio The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) announced today it will receive $500,000 from The University of Texas System over the next five years to develop a unique Graduate Program Initiative emphasizing biosensors and regenerative medicine. Of the 37 proposals received by the UT System from its nine academic and six health institutions, only seven were funded and only two were awarded to academic institutions. UTSA's Graduate Program Initiative builds upon existing programs in its College of Engineering and College of Sciences to prepare students for careers in academia, federal agencies and the biomedical industry.

"This program will provide qualified students with an exciting opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary research in science and engineering. This unique program will allow students to integrate courses and research training in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering and/or chemistry into their educational curriculum," said Dorothy Flannagan, dean of UTSA's Graduate School.

"Funding from this grant will foster and formalize new innovative collaborations among participating faculty and students," added Anson Ong, USAA Foundation Distinguished Professor and chair of UTSA's Department of Biomedical Engineering. "Each academic discipline has a different way of thinking and a different way of solving problems. By working together, the students in this program initiative will better understand the complex healthcare problems as well as finding novel and innovative solutions to solving these problems."

Regenerative medicine and biosensors are key elements for the advancement of science and the improvement of human health. Regenerative medicine allows scientists and practitioners to regenerate functional tissues in patients. Current treatments use tissues from the patient's own body or from a cadaver. However, both approaches have many potential risks. A biosensor is a device that allows scientists to
