Texas Biomedical Research Institute broke ground in December of 2021 on a $15 million nonhuman primate complex in San Antonio. Part of the Southwest National Primate Research Center, the four-building expansion will feature three large structures offering indoor and outdoor housing environments. An 18,000-sf animal care facility will provide a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic, pathology labs, and a staff meeting hub. Addressing a national shortage of nonhuman primate research subjects, the project will act as a testing hub for TBRI scientists and other institutions engaged in the creation of new diagnostics, therapies, and vaccines for infectious diseases.  The facilities will be built to withstand extreme weather conditions to protect the integrity of ongoing studies and optimize animal wellbeing. Flad Architects is the design consultant for the complex, which is slated for completion in early 2023.
