Research Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Research Plan has broad input and which has been used by leadership to  develop a path forward through goals, objectives and tactics. UTMB will create six integrated health communities that bring together researchers, educators, clinicians and community members to use prevention and treatment to transform illness to health.

The six integrated health communities are:

  • Infectious/Immunological Health
  • Brain Health
  • Metabolic Health
  • Life Span Health
  • Specialized Health
  • Public (social/physical) Health

A team of more than 50 UTMB research leaders have been instrumental in the development of meaningful objectives that are specific, measurable, identify resource requirements and arrayed over no more than two academic years. It is the relationship among objectives, strategies and tactics that holds the potential to align individual behavior with actions that change the direction and acceleration of UTMB research.
