We drive research in population health and data science by building and applying innovative methods in epidemiology, data, and communications—and we teach and support UT Health San Antonio faculty, staff, and students in creating a healthier South Texas and beyond.
The Bioinformatics Division is the home for High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure, large data storage, bioinformatics expertise, and interdisciplinary research experience to manage and distribute complex genomic data sets, to develop and perform bioinformatics tasks and statistical analyses in the area of genomics and systems biology.
The Biostatistics Division enables, accelerates and catalyzes research, supports rigor, reproducibility, and accountability in data analysis, and provides biostatistics and data science education to graduate students and faculty.
The Clinical Informatics Research Division (CIRD) is a research and academic division dedicated to improving health care by bridging biomedical, statistical, and computational domains. The CIRD curates a de-identified data warehouse that is accessible to researchers through multiple software tools such as i2b2, TriNetX, etc., for data query for study feasibility purposes.
Epidemiology focuses on cancer epidemiology, prevention, and survivorship through: risk assessment and stratification, biomarker discovery, and improvement of healthcare utilization among vulnerable populations.
The Health Policy and Evaluation Division focuses on how health policy, access to patient care, and social determinants of health impact disparities in health outcomes including cancer. The division also co-leads the evaluation and implementation efforts for the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) assessing how the CTSA contributes to research across the T1-T4 research spectrum.
The Institute for Health Promotion Research (IHPR) at UT Health San Antonio is leading the charge to discover why Latino health disparities exist and communicating solutions to this rapidly growing population, for the purpose of awareness, with a focus on the actions Latinos can take to live longer, healthier lives right now.
DEB Information Systems (IS) provides a full spectrum of analytic, programming, database, administration, project management, and security experience and skills to build, deliver, support, and maintain sophisticated data management capabilities critical to our University's research mission.
