The BioScience Research Collaborative is an innovative space where scientists and educators from Rice University and other Texas Medical Center institutions work together to perform leading research that benefits human medicine and health. Thoughtfully designed to facilitate and encourage interdisciplinary interactions among interinstitutional researchers, the BRC is equipped for cutting-edge laboratory, theoretical and computational investigations. Research encompasses a wide range of disciplines from chemistry to bioengineering and focuses largely on improving human wellness through science. More than just a building, the BRC is a catalyst for new and better ways for researchers to collaborate, explore, learn and lead.
Did you know that several companies have been founded by researchers in the BRC? NangioTx was started by Rice University Professor Jeffrey Hartgerink, Post-Doctoral Fellow Vivek Kumar and Omar Merchant, a Physician-in-Training. The company focuses on pharmaceuticals based on self-assembling peptides delivered to tissues to stimulate blood vessel growth, focusing on chronic peripheral vascular disease. In this disease blood flow to the extremities of the body, particularly the calf and feet, is progressively blocked until tissue begins to die due to lack of oxygen and nutrients. Typical treatment requires surgery but with additional blood vessels to supply the tissue, patients might require less extreme interventions.
