The TMC Innovation Institute is shaping the future of health care by uniting promising innovators with the best minds in academia, science and medicine. Our programs help startups streamline the development of therapeutic, diagnostic, medical device and digital health breakthroughs in the world’s largest medical center.

Where the Future Happens Every Day

Housed within our more than 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility, the programs that make up the TMC Innovation Institute focus on bringing to the Texas Medical Center the best solutions to unmet health care needs.

In addition, no medical center offers as many opportunities to discover solutions that are shaping the future of health care as the Texas Medical Center.

The TMC Innovation Institute provides the tools and action plans necessary to move products and companies forward, regardless of their stage of development. It also lowers the barriers of access to hospital stakeholders and key opinion leaders across our campus of 58 member institutions.

By offering companies access to the resources and expertise of the largest medical center in the world to drive health and life science advancements, TMC helps innovators bridge the gap between pioneering insights and patient outcomes, turning “what if?” into what is.
