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, 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 MRI 3T, Ultrasound, and X-Ray (CR). Please visit the TIC website for more information and an extensive list of services or compatible study types.

Human Imaging Facility

The Human Imaging Facility (HIF) meets the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) needs of the research community at Texas A&M University. State-of-the-art imaging is supported by our research-dedicated Siemens 3T Prisma magnet. We provide comprehensive support for MRI projects, from changing and waiting rooms to equipment and space for pre- and post-scan assessment. The HIF is part of the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences in the Texas A&M College of Arts & Sciences. Dr. Brian Anderson, professor, is the director of the facility and is supported by Mikki Rahmani, an MRI Technologist.

Bioscience Business Accelerator

The TIPS building is also home to the Texas A&M Bioscience Business Accelerator (BBA), a testing facility that provides comprehensive research services and product development support. The facility aims to accelerate the 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.
