UTMB will receive more than $11 million in federal stimulus grants, notes Heber Taylor, GCDN editor. “The medical branch was in line for a lot of this money because it was prepared. Some of the stimulus money was targeted toward institutions that could conduct research in areas such as emerging infectious diseases. The medical branch was fortunate to get those research dollars. But it also was prepared to do the research,” he wrote.
