TTUS Zoonotic & Infectious Diseases Research CenterThe Texas Tech University System is the only system with a research university in West Texas, a region where beef production, the dairy industry, and other nationally critical agricultural production is threatened by the emergence of zoonotic disease.

Additionally, TTUHSC El Paso is located in the same city as the largest port of land entry in the U.S. for manufactured goods, providing further opportunity for the international trafficking of animal and human disease. TTUS will protect the health status of the nation and global rural communities through its newly established Zoonotic & Infectious Diseases Research Center.
