Our VIsion

The Center of Innovation

The Texas Medical Center (TMC)—the largest medical complex in the world—is at the forefront of advancing life sciences. As home to the brightest minds in medicine, TMC nurtures cross-institutional collaboration, creativity, and innovation. Because together, we can push the limits of what’s possible.


Unprecedented Collaboration

Our world-renowned patient care, research, and education institutions have one
common goal: transform the future of medicine. As the largest concentration of
scientists anywhere, we’re harnessing our collective knowledge, talent, and
technology to lead the next generation of innovation.

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.
