About Us

DCI Research Service


The mission of BAMC DCI Research Service is to promote, coordinate, support and oversee organized scientific inquiry in basic laboratory research, clinical research, and pre-clinical research using human and animal subjects at SAMMC and the Southern Regional Medical Command (SRMC). The DCI Research Service also supports Graduate Medical Education (GME) by encouraging and supporting research that includes residents at BAMC. The DCI Research Service staff includes physiologists, molecular and cellular biologists, microbiologists, and a veterinarian, all with research experience including designing and executing research proposals and publication of results in peer-reviewed journals. These individuals are available by appointment to aid in research guidance and support. DCI Research service can be broken down into three categories: human research, animal research, and laboratory research. Guidance for conducting each type of research can be found on the respective pages.

Resident Research

DCI supports GME by spearheading the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium research day and other local resident training venues. Additionally, DCI strongly encourages residents to get involved in medical research and take advantage of research grants, up to $7500 per year, that may be available for residents to conduct research. Residents interested in research are encouraged to contact the DCI Laboratory or Biological Research Service to receive further guidance and support.
