Welcome to UTMB Research Profiles

UTMB Health is internationally renowned for its highly collaborative research endeavors with academic, federal, pharmaceutical and biotechnological partners around the world. These collaborations are critical to our ability to remain on the cutting edge of biomedical research.

UTMB’s infectious diseases research programs are among the oldest and well established west of the Mississippi River. UTMB’s Galveston National Laboratory contains the only fully operational BSL-4 laboratory on a US academic campus, where protection against and treatments for the world’s most deadly diseases are developed. The GNL’s National Biocontainment Training Center is dedicated to preparing the worldwide research community of infectious disease and biodefense researchers to work safely in high containment research laboratories. UTMB has been designated a World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Vaccine Research, only the second in the Western Hemisphere.

UTMB is also home to The World Reference Center for Emerging Viruses and Arboviruses, a collection of more than 6,000 virus strains that accepts any virus suspected of being transmitted by animals or insects for identification and characterization. The center partners with research institutions and governments around the world to combat the world’s deadliest diseases.

UTMB’s Institute for Translational Sciences works tirelessly to bring research from the laboratory bench to the patient’s bedside. To accomplish this goal, the ITS develops collaborative relationships with researchers from a range of disciplines and local communities, serving as a site of integration for community engagement activities and establishing long-term relationships with community-based groups.

UTMB is a member of the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world as well as the Gulf Coast Consortia, which draws upon the strengths of its seven Houston-area member institutions to build collaborative research teams and training programs at the intersection of various scientific, mathematical and technical fields.

This expertise portal is a key component of UTMB’s mission to foster collaborative research partnerships that expand our capacity for multidisciplinary research. UTMB Research Profiles is a searchable database of expertise across all disciplines at UTMB. This research networking tool is powered by Elsevier Fingerprint Engine, which scans and analyzes every publication in Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, to produce a fingerprint of each author’s expertise. The expertise profiles generated in this way reveal connections between authors and research projects and make it easier for researchers to form collaborations for future work and funding opportunities. 

Explore the profiles, publications and grant data for hundreds of scholars within UTMB, and through the Experts Community, follow the network and collaboration within UTMB. UTMB Research Profiles are organized by academic departments and is publicly accessible to others in academia, industry, the media and the public at-large. We invite you to log in and view the profiles.
