The mission of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is to bring the benefits of the health sciences to the achievement and maintenance of human health, with a focus on the citizens of Tennessee and the region, by pursuing an integrated program of education, research, clinical care, and public service.
The primary purpose of the research conducted at the RBL is to develop new drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics to protect the general population from infectious diseases and bioterrorism. One of 13 NIAID funded regional biocontainment labs in the country, the UTHSC RBL will be limited to research requiring Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3) containment as defined by the Centers for Disease Control. BSL-3 facilities are designed to safely and effectively study contagious materials. Scientists at the UT RBL investigate: multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, tularemia, streptococci, cholera, and Chlamydia infections. Other pathogens will be added as the facility and faculty expand.
We are proud to have been selected as a site to develop vaccines for infectious diseases that pose a serious health threat to humanity. We invite you to learn more about the opportunities for biomedical advancement the RBL will afford UT Health Science Center researchers, as well as investigators from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, Memphis. An additional bonus is that the RBL is a critical and unique resource for the Memphis Bioworks Foundation's effort to attract new biomedical businesses to the Memphis area.
We hope you share our enthusiasm for the potential the RBL will have for improving prevention, intervention and therapy of infectious diseases all over the world.
