Texas Tech Gets Federal Funding for Anti-Terrorism Efforts

Texas Tech is at the forefront of fighting the war on terrorism and now that effort is getting stronger. On Monday, Congressman Randy Neugebauer presented the Texas Tech Institute for Environmental and Human Health with $2.4 million.

TIEHH Director Ronald Kendall says,"The emerging threat of chemical and biological warfare require a great deal of technology to counter, to detect these materials and to protect ourselves against them."

The money will be used for readiness missions with the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security.
