Community Advisory Board (CAB)

The GNL Community Advisory Board (CAB) supplements the activities of the CLC as a more long-standing and less formally structured group of community citizens who meet on a regular basis at the invitation of the President of UTMB to hear about progress in the infectious disease research programs at the University, including progress in the construction and commissioning of the GNL. 

Useful information is mutually shared at these breakfast meetings, which play an important role in informing the community on developments in the University’s biocontainment research programs.
