Congratulations, Dr. Nair!
We congratulate Dr. Saraswathy Nair for her appointment as the chair for the Department of Biomedicine. The Department of Biomedicine has made an excellent choice in Dr. Nair as their new chair. Dr. Nair has courageously assumed the duties of the chair in a time of great transitions but also at a time of new opportunities. The work will not be easy but the possibilities that lie ahead are exiting. We are looking forward to working with Dr. Nair to move the department into UTRGV and position it as a key player in the health initiative of LRGV. We hope that you extend all the help to Dr. Nair as she develops the plans for the future Department of Biomedicine.

Please join family, friends, coworkers, students and all who loved and revered Dr. Luis Colom for a special naming ceremony. August 22, 2014 - 11:00am
Luis V. Colom, M.D., Ph.D., was Vice President of the Division of Research and Dean of the College of Nursing and Dean of the College of Biomedical Sciences and Health Professions. He lost his battle with cancer on Thursday, March 27, 2014. His department’s success created the need for even more research labs; in 2009 he wrote the federal grant to seek additional funding for what eventually became Biomedical Sciences and Health Professions Building II. This building will now bear his name.
