The University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center unveiled plans for a $120 million bioengineering research facility Nov. 15. The new facility was named the Texas Instruments Biomedical Engineering and Sciences Building following a gift from TI. It will be jointly shared by UT Dallas and UT Southwestern.“This new facility will deepen the collaboration between UT Southwestern and UT Dallas to advance transformational bioengineering research to improve patient care," said Daniel K. Podolsky, UT Southwestern Medical Center president, in a statement. "By integrating biomedical engineering with advances in related fields, such as artificial intelligence, molecular imaging, robotics and genetic engineering, the UTSW-UTD collaborations will further solidify North Texas as a hub for biomedical innovation.”
