What is Research Connect?

Research Connect is a database designed to bring faculty and medical students together to work on research projects. This resource is available to UT Health San Antonio's Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine faculty and medical students. The goal is to connect medical students to research opportunities/projects posted by faculty members. This site is the first step to a successful partnership; faculty and medical students are encouraged to meet and discuss projects, responsibilities, and schedules just as they would for any job or internship.
