The University of Texas Medical Branch: UTMB has many highly interactive research centers, biomedical institutes, and a national biocontainment laboratory with excellent infrastructure to conduct research in BSL-2, -3 and -4 on diverse animal models of infectious diseases, including arthropod containment levels 1-4 (ACL4 for tick research only) and extensive insectaries. The Department, with 54 full-time clinical and research faculty, is ranked among the top 25 of its peer departments in NIH funding.
