JLABS @ TMC Celebrates 5 Years: From the Pages of Our Scrapbook


Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS @ TMC turns FIVE this month! We couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate our anniversary than with a JLABS @ TMC Scrapbook. As we celebrate half a decade of innovation in the Lone Star State, we captured some of our favorite moments along the way.

First, one of our favorite tools for exploring and tracking achievements is JLABS Navigator. We’re delighted to report where JLABS @ TMC residents and alumni stand today.

  • 6 Publicly Traded Companies

Memories and Milestones

In 2019, Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS together with the Texas Medical Center and AngelMD announced the Breakthrough Medical Technologies QuickFire Challenge. Open to entrepreneurs, researchers and start-up companies in the local area and around the world working on potentially game-changing medical device innovations with the aim to impact human health, the innovators with the best ideas were granted awards including a one-year residency at JLABS @ TMC. 

To our team: thanks for all you do to keep JLABS going.


Last but not least, leadership and alumni of JLABS @ TMC heard we were publishing a Scapbook and shared well wishes!
