About Us

Biotechnology is the use of living organisms and/or biological processes to solve problems or to make useful products such as vaccines and therapeutic drugs. Created to prepare students as sciencetists to enter rapidly evolving STEM related, bioscience and medical fields, the Texas Bioscience Institute (TBI) provides strong academic and technical education that can be applied to real world situations, and affords students a foundation for upper-level studies in many STEM, biosciences, medicine, engineering, or mathematics fields.

The TBI allows students to reach their full potential in a learning environment that favors problem solving, interdisciplinary instruction and integration of theory and practice. This fosters success in college STEM, health science and biotechnology programs, ensures high standards and challenging opportunities, and allows students to be active partners in education.

The Texas Bioscience Institute facility is located on Scott and White's West Campus alongside world-class medical research and bioscience commercial laboratories. State-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories provide vast educational opportunities for high school students, traditional college students, and nontraditional college students in the same facility.
