The Biology of Aging program is one of the disciplines of the Integrated BioMedical Sciences Graduate Program (IBMS) at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio. It provides education and training for graduate students interested in basic research that holds promise for practical application towards lifespan intervention.

The IBMS is a truly integrated, multidisciplinary program made up of seven disciplines that cross basic science and clinical departments. Students choose course work, an area of research and a mentor based on their interests and professional goals. The Graduate School partnerships inside and outside the University, including businesses and community organizations, provide additional support and experiences by consulting students and providing internships and potential employment opportunities.
