THBD’s Mission: To grow twenty-first century jobs by fostering bioscience education, research, and healthcare in Central Texas.

A note from our Executive Director:

Whether you’re a scientist, interested in launching a startup, seeking funding opportunities, or are visiting Temple, Texas, I’m sure you’ll agree that there are exciting things happening here!

With my background in cancer research, I am passionate about bringing innovative solutions to the medical and life science industry in Texas. As Executive Director of THBD, I have the amazing opportunity to nurture biotech and healthcare related startup companies in our 5,000 sq. ft. office and laboratory facility. Working alongside these promising companies, THBD supplies mentorship, support, seed funding (on a case by case basis) and resources.

Amazing new technologies are being generated in our labs. I’m eager to see what the future holds for the life science industry as a result of what takes place at THBD. Please take a moment to tour our incubator and meet our tenants. Feel free to contact us with questions.

On behalf of our entire team, thank you for your interest and support of the medical and life sciences in Temple and across central Texas!

Sincerely,

Tami Annable
