Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2)

The current COVID-19 pandemic underscores the importance of the Institute’s mission to pioneer and share scientific breakthroughs that protect you, your families and our global community from the threat of infectious diseases. Our team is hard at work, and our supporters have allowed us to mobilize resources and aid the world in finding interventions to fight COVID-19. Texas Biomed is the only nonprofit, infectious disease research institute in the country with its sole mission to eradicate infection and an 80-year history of making life-saving discoveries that have led to therapies and vaccines for COVID-19, Hepatitis, HIV, Ebola and much more. By streamlining science at all stages and combining the highest biosafety level laboratories with a national nonhuman primate research center, the Institute expedites the development of diagnostics, therapies and vaccines, producing science that delivers better health outcomes around the world.

While our team continues research, we are taking appropriate precautions for the safety of our staff and the community. Texas Biomed’s campus is currently closed to visitors, allowing only employees, graduate students, necessary vendors, and critical delivery personnel to access campus. The Texas Biomed outreach program, which includes tours and community education events, has switched to a virtual platform for 2021. Outreach Info
