$290,000 grant/partnership to develop infectious diseases degree

May 2005

A master’s degree program in infectious diseases – with special emphasis on tuberculosis – will be established in the Reynosa-McAllen border region by this fall, thanks to a $290,000 grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The grant partners are the Health Science Center and the Universidad Autonoma de Tamaulipas (UAT) in Reynosa.

"The grant will foster institutional partnerships between U.S. and Mexican higher education institutions as articulated in the NAFTA agreement," said Richard A. Garcia Jr., assistant vice president for South Texas programs, who is a co-principal investigator on the grant with Juan Jose Gonzalez Cabriales, M.E.S., dean of the School of Medicine at UAT.
