Our Story

TYBR Health, Inc. was formed out of the Texas Medical Center (TMC) Biodesign fellowship in 2020. Over the course of 1 year, the team identified a clinical problem, created a solution, and started a company. The team met for the first time on day 1 of the program, and as of July 2020 will continue forward, not as fellows, but as co-founders of TYBR Health.
