The Greater Houston Partnership invites you to attend the Houston No Limits Welcome Breakfast on Friday, May 20 during the Medical World Americas conference. Join us at this complimentary breakfast to learn more about how Houston is building a life sciences innovation ecosystem, and network with our presenters including Emmanuelle Schuler, Head of JLABS at TMCx and a panel of local life science innovation leaders.
Why Houston for Life Sciences? Anchored by the world-renowned Texas Medical Center and more than 190 life science companies, 132 hospitals and health clinics, and some of the country’s top research facilities, Houston is well positioned to be the nation’s third coast for life sciences. TMCx is one of the country’s largest life science incubators offering unprecedented clinical access, an all-star network of more than 120 advisors, and newly renovated office space.
The new JLABS @ TMCx is focused on supporting emerging pharmaceutical, medical device, consumer and digital health companies through the tenuous time between early discovery and having the necessary resources to move a product through the path to commercialization. JLABS gives companies every tangible advantage to succeed, providing access to core research facilities hosting specialized capital equipment, educational programs, operational capabilities and a community of like-minded entrepreneurs. They also provide access to Johnson & Johnson Innovation deal teams expanding opportunities for venture capital funding, as well as the deal-making, therapeutic and technology area, product development and commercialization expertise of Johnson & Johnson. Therapeutic areas of focus include oncology, immunology, neuroscience, cardiovascular and metabolism, infectious diseases and vaccines.
