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

Older UT GSBS dissertations (approximately 1979-1999) are available in print-format only and are available in the HAM-TMC Library. They're listed in the Library Catalog under the subject heading: "Dissertations, Academic--University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences."

Some older full-text dissertations are also available via ProQuest but access to this database is restricted to the TMC community.
