Texas Biomedical Research Institute is located in San Antonio, and is known for being on of the world’s leading independing research institutes in the biomedical field. Dr. Olivier says in the San Antonio Business Journal:
“My expertise in technology, especially in proteomics — the analysis of proteins — can contribute to many ongoing Texas Biomed studies on both humans and baboons. We will be able to merge our tools and technologies with the outstanding resources and study cohorts at Texas Biomed.”
