About TxBDC

The Texas Biomedical Device Center, located in the Bioengineering Science Building at the University of Texas at Dallas, was established in April of 2012 with a total of $8M in donations from Texas Instruments and a private donor. In the short time since its creation, the center has published over 80 peer reviewed publications, participated in multiple successful clinical trials for Targeted Plasticity Therapy, spun out 3 new technologies to manufacturing companies and generated an additional $20 million in funding.

These accomplishments are all in support of the center’s mission to bridge the quality of life gap by:

  1. developing affordable biomedical technologies,
  2. driving economic activity and reducing risk for medical device innovation,
  3. creating a highly technical workforce to feed industries.

The Texas Biomedical Device Center is a collaborative effort engaging researchers from multiple disciplines working toward a common goal: creating new biomedical technology and therapies. This interdisciplinary program includes faculty members from the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, and the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

The center also facilitates interactions among clinicians at North Texas medical facilities including UT Southwestern, as well as corporations to create new biomedical devices and therapies addressing a wide range of medical conditions.
