Open-access, full-text copies of UT GSBS dissertations from 2009 onwards. Topics include all aspects of the biomedical sciences.

Older UT GSBS dissertations (from approximately 1979-1999) are available in print format only, in The TMC Library. They are listed in the Catalog. Search by subject heading: "Dissertations, Academic--University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences"for the full list.

Some older GSBS dissertations are available online via ProQuest, but full-text access is restricted to TMC academic institutions affiliated with The TMC Library.
