About this collection

Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed) began in 1941 as the Foundation of Applied Research founded by noted San Antonio businessman and philanthropist Tom Slick. The Institute's original mission was to provide broad research and study in agriculture, natural sciences, and medicine. It currently focuses on specialized biomedical research on infectious diseases, genetics, cancer research, cardiovascular disease, and neonatal diseases.

This collection includes digitized Texas Biomed publications from 1953 to the present. Publications include Progress in Biomedical Research (1954- ), Annual Report (1953- ), and Scientific Report (2009- ) and are arranged chronologically by publication. Additionally, A Stereotaxic Atlas of the Brain of the Baboon (Papio) and an anniversary publication entitled The First Half Century and are included.
