Translational Imaging Center
The Translational Imaging Center’s (TIC) advanced diagnostic imaging encompasses the most advanced imaging research technology available today in partnership with Siemens, Philips, Fuji, and GE. Housed within TIPS, TIC generates, and manages, digital images through a sophisticated Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS). Some modalities offered by TIC are CT 128-slice, PET/CT Time-of-Flight, MRI 3T, a Cardiac Catheterization Lab, Ultrasound, and X-Ray (CR). For more information and an extensive list of services or compatible study types, please visit the TIC website.
Texas A&M Bioscience Business Accelerator
The TIPS building is also home to the Texas A&M Bioscience Business Accelerator (BBA), a testing facility which provides comprehensive research services and product development support. The facility aims to accelerate the entire commercialization process, assisting with everything from product inception to clinical trials. Industry and academic researchers will have access, in one location, to experts in all major fields of medicine, veterinary medicine, bioengineering, statistics, bioinformatics, laboratory animal medicine, business, and regulatory affairs. Incubator benefits include access to dedicated wet lab space, office space, meeting rooms, and facilities services.
Incubator tenants should have the capacity for growth, and the potential to provide economic benefits to Texas and the Research Valley. They should create new jobs and opportunities for members of The Texas A&M University System, Texas A&M, its faculty, researchers, students, as well as local businesses.
With offices in TIPS, Innovation Partners is focused on harvesting new innovations born from the Texas A&M and Health Science Center research community, facilitating the commercialization process to help usher technology from the lab to the marketplace. Innovation Partners promotes an innovative and entrepreneurial culture among the university research community, encouraging and welcoming the advancement of university-industry partnerships to expand commercialization opportunities, further research development, and ultimately impact the lives of people locally, nationally, and globally.
