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 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 4 successful clinical trials for Targeted Plasticity Therapy, spun out 4 new advanced biomedical technologies to manufacturing companies and generated an additional $25 million in funding.
TxBDC develops technologies to prevent injuries, detect impairments, and restore quality of life lost due to neurological injuries and disease. We are committed to the development of affordable and innovative therapies and technologies.
Our teams specialize in Neurological Therapies, and Biomedical Devices and Software to treat neurological injuries and diseases such as Tinnitus, Stroke, PTSD, Chronic Pain, Autism, Multiple Sclerosis, Rett Syndrome, Phantom Limb Pain, Spinal Cord Injury, and Peripheral Nerve Injury. TxBDC also partners with clinicians and commercial entities to use our affordable technology to develop and deliver effective solutions for bioelectric medicines.
TxBDC 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 medical facilities such as UT Southwestern, as well as local corporations to create new biomedical devices and therapies addressing a wide range of medical conditions.
