Established in 2003, researchers involved in SALSI have driven the expansion of new scientific knowledge throughout Texas and have enhanced the research, teaching and service missions of The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA). This collaboration has enabled joint doctoral programs and research projects and has driven initiatives that stimulated the growth of the biomedical and biotechnology industries in San Antonio. SALSI has also fostered the commercialization of the products of research with institutional partners such as the Southwest Research Institute and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute.
The present global issues and challenges that research institutions are working to address are complex and occur at the intersection of disciplines. Understanding that in order to advance research, creativity, and innovations, there must be an integration and convergence of disciplines. Several new joint initiatives will be launched within SALSI to enhance interdisciplinary research collaborations, significantly raise our international research profile and competitiveness, and foster excellence and innovation for both institutions.
The SALSI Academy has been created to serve as the focal point for a wide range of educational, scientific and policy issues in the life sciences. Under the auspices of SALSI and with guidance from leadership of UTHSCSA and UTSA, the Academy has a mission to bring together expertise to collaborate on joint studies that significantly contribute to solutions for challenges facing healthcare in Texas and around the nation. The SALSI Academy will achieve its mission through Faculty Development Programs, Shared Resources (Core Laboratories, etc.) and Collaborative Funding Mechanisms.
