Georgetown’s bioscience community is thriving
Founded in 2007, the Texas Life-Sciences Collaboration Center (TLCC) has grown to 8 program companies and filled the first of three buildings in its planned campus. The idea to create a center where bioscience entrepreneurs could share space in a collaborative environment was brought forward by Dr. Kerry Oliver of Radix Biosolutions. The center was funded by the City of Georgetown, Southwestern University, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and GREX. The TLCC offers shared wet lab space in a secure and supportive environment.
