TMC-Denmark BioBridge

Introducing the global life sciences partnership between Texas Medical Center (TMC) and the Kingdom of Denmark, this initiative aims to advance commercial interests, promote clinical innovation, and facilitate research collaborations and knowledge transfer.

Denmark has positioned itself as a global frontrunner in life sciences and healthcare, and the Danish government has initiated life science strategies aimed at supporting the expansion of Danish companies, both nationally and internationally. In pursuit of these objectives, Denmark recognizes Texas Medical Center (TMC) as a crucial partner due to its ambitious healthcare endeavours and offers significant opportunities for Denmark to facilitate knowledge transfer and foster possibilities in Danish healthcare innovation and research.

Situated in Houston, the Texas Medical Center stands as the world’s largest medical city, boasting the highest number of hospitals, physicians, square footage, and patient volume. With over 60 best-in-class academic and clinical institutions and an annual patient encounter exceeding 10 million, TMC serves as a global healthcare hub.

The TMC | Denmark BioBridge brings together governments, academic and research institutions, and innovation organizations in collaboration to accelerate innovative healthcare initiatives.
