​Welcome to "San Antone," a city rich in history and tradition. San Antonio is among the most popular destinations in Texas and boasts a thriving tourism industry. But our economy is more than just the Alamo and the Riverwalk.

Hey, science writers! Experience innovation at UTSA

Posted September 29, 2016, 10:10 am

This is an exciting time for the University of Texas at San Antonio. Founded in 1969 by the Texas Legislature as a “university of the first class,” UTSA has become highly regarded as a destination for excellence, serving nearly 29,000 students, and developing specialties in health, cybersecurity, energy, sustainability, and human and social development.

A new model for children’s mental health care, developed over 130 years

Posted September 20, 2016, 1:41 pm

What is today Clarity Child Guidance Center was founded in 1886 when 13 caring women met in the Maverick Hotel in downtown San Antonio to form the Protestant Home for Destitute Children. Over the years we found that the children who were not adopted or returned to their families were experiencing mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Through caring for those kids we evolved to become the premier resource for children in need of mental health treatment – Clarity Child Guidance Center.

​There's plenty to see and do in San Antonio while you're here, but we hope you'll have a chance to visit the South Texas Medical Center to tour University Hospital and The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Over the years, a number of innovations have taken place at University Hospital, part of University Health System — from some of the earliest studies of the cardiac stent, invented next door at the UT Health Science Center; to the San Antonio Lung Transplant protocol, used worldwide to improve the viability of donor lungs; to the development of improved diabetes therapies led by scientists at the Texas Diabetes Institute, a stand-alone campus on the city's West Side.

San Antonio Science wants people to know the city's whole story

Posted September 7, 2016, 9:48 am

San Antonio is home to the Spurs, the River Walk, multiple military bases, great margaritas, and some of the best Mexican food anywhere in the world. It is also home to multiple public and private universities, the largest military medical center in the world, the largest captive primate colony in the world, and a growing biotech sector. We are world leaders in cybersecurity. We played an integral role in the development of the first personal computers and the microprocessor. Perhaps most exciting, in the last 20 years, two Nobel prize winners in chemistry have been products of San Antonio. We are known for the river, the Spurs, the military, and the Mexican food, but our achievements in science and technology go largely unnoticed.

Southwest Research Institute

Visualization of the Ebloa GP protein​You might be tempted to call Southwest Research Institute — or SwRI, as employees refer to it — the place where science and engineering go to play. You wouldn’t be entirely right, but you wouldn’t be wrong. There’s serious work under way at the San Antonio-based institute, now in its 69th year. But the staff also pursues research that is a mix of the practical and the prescient, aimed at meeting clients’ future needs in engineering and the physical sciences.

Texas Biomedical Research Institute

Dr. Andrew HayhurstGreetings! As a host sponsor this year, Texas Biomedical Research Institute is excited to welcome you to San Antonio, our birthplace and home for 75 years. Texas Biomed was established in 1941 by Thomas Baker Slick Jr. – a businessman, inventor, oilman, rancher, engineer, philanthropist, peacemaker and adventurer. Motivated by the philosophy that the welfare of mankind could best be advanced through scientific endeavor, he dared to imagine a “city of science” in South Texas. His legacy lives on as Texas Biomed aims to unravel the mysteries of chronic and infectious diseases through innovative thinking, creative problem solving and cutting edge technologies.
