Texas A&M University system will be housing three national bio-defense centers that will make vaccines and develop ways to help the U.S with the threat of  bio-terrorism. When it comes to bio-defense, the nation is stepping up with word from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announcing Texas A&M University System will be taking on three national centers to make vaccines for different types of pandemic diseases and thrust the nation to deal with bio-terrorism threats more efficiently.

From the Washington Post:

The biodefense centers will work to develop and manufacture vaccines to rapidly respond and protect against influenza pandemics and conduct research and training for responding to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats.

Texas A&M will receive about $176 million in federal money and another $107 million from partnerships. This is great for our nation and the local economy once again with this major federal contract to Texas A&M.
