Open-access, full-text copies of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences dissertations from 2009 onwards. Topics include all aspects of the biomedical sciences.

Authors who expect to publish do have the option to withhold full text for a limited period of time. When that has been done, the reader will see a release date posted with the abstract.

Older GSBS dissertations (from approximately 1979-1999) are available, in print format only, at McGovern Historical Center. They can be found via OneSearch. Search by subject heading: "Dissertations, Academic--University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences" for the full list, click DigitalCommons@TMC in the white banner above the search box, or use the main search box to search for known individual dissertations.

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