The Texas Tech Institute of Environmental and Human Health has received a $1.1 million research award from the U.S. Army’s Research, Development and Engineering Command that will allow them to continue the Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt Jr. National Program for Countermeasures to Biological and Chemical Threats.

Ron Kendall, director of TIEHH, said the grant provides key funding that will quote “allow us to continue our work in countermeasures to chemical and biological threats – in other words, counterterrorism measures.”

The program has yielded over 100 scientific publications since 1999 and major textbook and critical patents such as the Fibertect decontamination wipe. The grant will go towards funding research in the areas of high-performance computer modeling and toxic agents in the environment, development of personal protection against toxic agents, and development of threat detection.
