The Center for Research and Training in the Sciences (CRTS), previously known as Center for the Advancement of Life Sciences (CAS), was established within the College of Sciences (COS) in June 2005.
The mission of the CRTS is to promote Science, Research, and Education. The Center coordinates and administers programs related to all scientific disciplines under the direction of Dr. Andrew Tsin. Currently, the Center oversees 13 research and training programs with participants from various disciplines within UTSA. These participants include graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows.
