The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center or UT Southwestern Medical Center is located in Dallas, Texas. UT Southwestern was founded in 1943. Since its inception UT Southwestern has become one of the most outstanding medical centers in the U.S. Four Nobel Laureates are on staff as faculty, 16 members of the Institute of Medicine and 15 members of the National Academy of Science. The University is ranked in the very top for medical school education, patient care and medical research in the U.S.
Scientists enhance ability of antibiotics to defeat resistant types of bacteria using molecules called PPMOs
Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have developed a strategy to overcome a key defense that drug-resistant bacteria use to fend off antibiotic attack.
Researchers with the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center successfully developed a synthetic polymer that can transport a drug into lung cancer cells without going inside of normal lung cells.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have uncovered a mechanism that a type of pathogenic bacteria found in shellfish use to sense when they are in the human gut, where they release toxins that cause food poisoning.
The heart is the only muscle that contracts and relaxes continuously over a lifetime to pump oxygen-rich blood to the body's organs. Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center now have identified a previously unrecognized ...
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have determined the atomic structure of an enzyme that plays an essential role in cell division, the fundamental process that occurs countless times daily in many life forms on Earth.
