Despite recent allegations involving its bio-defense research, Texas A&M believes it still has a good chance at landing a major Homeland Security center.

The University is considered to be one of the front runners for the National Bio and Agro-Defense facility. And A&M leaders believe recent events may even enhance their chances. "The reality is if the National bio and agro-defense facility is going to be placed at some place with a very high order of concern for safety, we indeed have that," said Texas A&M Interim President Eddie Davis. "And in fact, our procedures will probably be stronger and more improved that any university in our country."

If A&M is selected, it would receive an initial federal construction grant of $450-million.
