The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley broke ground in November of 2019 on the $30 million Institute for Neuroscience in Harlingen. Designed by Muñoz & Co. Architects, the 32,570-sf translational research facility will provide integrated laboratory, diagnostic, and clinical spaces where doctors and scientists can collaboratively develop innovative therapies for neuropsychiatric disorders. Acting as an incubator for the training of tomorrow's neurologists, psychiatrists, and neuroscientists, the two-story building will accommodate medical specialties including memory disorders, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and cerebrovascular and neuromuscular diseases. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2021.
