There’s not a medical center in the world with our volume of patients. We have great expertise in cardiovascular disease, cancer, children’s medical problems, neuroscience, strokes, rehabilitations, and other things. It’s very important that we all come together and collaborate.

James Willerson, M.D. President & Medical Director, Texas Heart Institute

We have assembled a highly talented group of individuals from across the medical center to shape the structure of the institutes that will position the Texas Medical Center as ‘the third coast’ for life science research, education, and innovation.

Bill McKeon EVP, COO & CSO, Texas Medical Center

One of the aspects of the new vision that I find so innovative and so promising is the idea to bring all the resources of Texas Medical Center, including business innovation, legal knowledge, regulatory knowledge, and science, under one roof.

Brett Giroir, M.D. EVP & CEO, Texas A&M Health Science Center

It is exciting to see the leadership of TMC and our community pledge their commitment to formalize collaborations across our member institutions. Together, we can form one of the most compelling and productive life science clusters in the world.
