      Take a mini virtual tour of the fifth JLABS facility to open in the U.S. in Texas.

      As the saying goes, everything’s bigger in Texas—including Johnson & Johnson Innovation LLC’s newest offshoot, JLABS @ TMC, which opens its doors this week at the Texas Medical Center in Houston.

      The 34,000-square-foot life sciences incubator—the fifth JLABS facility to debut in the U.S.—will provide up to 50 up-and-coming startups innovating in the heathcare space with everything from private offices to modular laboratory suites decked out with state-of-the-art equipment.

      “JLABS @ TMC enhances our already robust ecosystem of talented entrepreneurs who are solving the greatest unmet healthcare needs of our generation,” said Robert C. Robbins, M.D., president and CEO of the Texas Medical Center. “TMC has spent decades making healthcare history, and now these [startups] housed at TMC will take innovation to new heights.”

      So what is it like to actually work inside such an innovative space? Take our mini virtual tour.
