A Strong Backbone of Support

The Temple Health and Bioscience District (THBD) is the only such district established in the state of Texas, and is devoted to the creation and development of healthcare and bioscience/biotechnology opportunities within the City of Temple.

To assert this mission, THBD is a signatory to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed in 2009 among Temple-based Participating Entities (Collaborators) for the establishment and operation of the THBD Office and Laboratory Facility.

In addition to our office and laboratory space, THBD provides networking opportunities with key local collaborators: Baylor Scott and White hospital system, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Texas A&M’s AgrilLfe Research Center, Texas A&M Health Science Center (medical school), and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Working together across central Texas

By working together with other incubators and organizations who share our mission to grow central Texas as the biotech corridor, we are only helping our state to continue to bring the latest innovations and companies in to help us continue to flourish.

THBD’s Executive Director Tami Annable is a member of several organizations seeking our shared mission including the P-20 Central Texas Regional Council and Capital City Innovation. By working with these like-minded individuals, we can move closer to establishing Central Texas as the biotech hub.

Our friends at ACC Bioscience Incubator launched a new podcast, “Science in the Mall, Y’all,” that explores the startup companies housed in ACC’s Highland Mall campus. Journey along as these companies seek answers to some of today’s most complex questions.

As a first time medtech founder, It is amazing being surrounded by the network of like-minded founders and teams who show up to Temple Health and Bioscience District. Combined with the experiential knowledge, resourcefulness, and caring staff, this is the medical startup hub for Central Texas.
