The school applies strong traditions in basic, translational and applied biotechnology research. 

NSTM will launch a variety of basic, clinical and biotechnology educational programs to train a new generation of scientists and health professionals.

The depth and breadth of the Texas Medical Center and Baylor College of Medicine in concert with resources made available by the Houston location provide the foundation and the model for the establishment of the National School of Tropical Medicine.

Why is Baylor ideal for the new National School of Tropical Medicine?

Our school aspires to unify tropical disease and global health activities across the TMC, as well as with our university neighbors in greater Houston and East Texas, through interdisciplinary efforts to enhance NTDs and NIoPs education, R&D, policy, and advocacy to alleviate these global health burdens.
