Texas A&M University opened its new Human Clinical Research Facility (HCRF) on Tuesday, and the building will be home to some of the world’s leading research and education in human health, performance, nutrition and well-being.
“This facility will be a world leader in innovation and research, and the knowledge created from it will influence generations to come,” noted U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, a 1976 Texas A&M graduate.
“The investments we make in buildings such as this are investments going forward and they are critical to Tier 1 universities such as Texas A&M. I am especially interested in it because I am among the age group they will be studying here.”
Added Texas A&M President Michael K. Young, “This is a vision that has come to fruition. The collaboration among the colleges, researchers and students will produce knowledge that will benefit people around the world. Such a facility as this is central to all we do.”
