TTUHSC Researchers and Heroes

They come from all over the world. They come from the finest research facilities in the world. They come to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center where they find a home and support for their inquisitive minds, searching for answers to the diseases that plague people in West Texas and around the world. They find answers in bits and pieces putting in long hours – hoping those bits and pieces lead to life-changing solutions. They are researchers, teachers, mentors, scholars. They are also heroes.
