The University of Texas at Dallas and UT Southwestern broke ground on the Texas Instruments Biomedical Engineering and Sciences Building in November of 2021. Located on the East Campus of UT Southwestern Medical Center, the 150,000-sf facility will strategically collocate complementary research programs to foster the discovery and development of innovative medical solutions. Leveraging advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, and molecular and genetic engineering, the five-story structure will provide sophisticated wet labs, dry labs, and multidisciplinary collaboration spaces for dozens of faculty members and their teams. A biodesign center will feature a large studio for prototyping and assembly, 3D printing suites, and a metal fabrication shop. Texas Instruments is providing $15 million in funding for the project, which is slated for completion in 2023.
