The Texas A&M Health Science Center Institute of Biosciences and Technology in Houston has been named the newest member of the Gulf Coast Consortia, a Houston-Galveston area organization and one of the largest inter-institutional academic cooperatives in the nation focused on building strong, collaborative, biomedical research groups and interdisciplinary training opportunities for students.

The consortia merges the strengths of its member institutions to establish interdisciplinary research and training initiatives in the quantitative biomedical sciences, with an end goal of applying the resulting knowledge to the treatment and prevention of disease.

The Institute of Biosciences and Technology joins Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, University of Houston, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, and University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center as the newest member of the consortium. The institute is the first new member to join the consortia since it was first established in 2001.
