Tech Opens Bio Defense Center

One day after the Department of Homeland Defense is created, Texas Tech takes a step in the same direction. On Tuesday, Tech opened the Center for Bio Defense, Law, and Public Policy. The center brings several departments together to prepare for the possibility of a biological attack.

U.S. Congressman Ralph Hall of Texas congratulated the group on its successful effort to improve homeland defense. Tech law professor Victoria Sutton will direct the center due in large part to her experience in Washington.

"I think it was a lot of experience, and if you have the right background, experience, and you get the right people all in one place sometimes, it all just happens to come together," said Sutton.

Sutton served as an advisor under the first Bush administration.
