"Home of the baboons opts for new name and new tagline"

That's probably the best headline I've read all day.
SAN ANTONIO -- One of San Antonio’s premier research facilities has a new name and an expanded mission.

The Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research is now the Texas Biomedical Research Institute.

You might know it as the place with the monkeys on Loop 410, often confused with the Southwest Research Institute next door. The scientists who work at Texas Biomed hope there won’t be any more mistaking who they are and what they do.

Nope. These are the baboon guys, and they are doing work to "enhance lives through discovery".

And sometimes they chase baboons, too.
