WELCOME TO TI-3D

image It has been said that “Universities invest many millions in basic research, yet few have invested in the infrastructure required to put their discoveries to the test.” (A. Ivinson, Science, vol. 310, Nov. 4, 2005, pg. 77)
The University of Texas at Austin and the Texas Institute for Drug and Diagnostics Development are setting out to change that. TI-3D is setting up an organization and infrastructure that will facilitate and provide coordination of the translational medical therapeutic and diagnostic research efforts between educational institutions and industrial companies. For the first time, chemists and biochemists will be collaborating closely at the institutional level with medical researchers at the forefront of medical science. In addition, they will be interfacing with the commercial sector at an early stage of research to foster the speedy development of breakthroughs into products that will help patients.
