Distinguished Visiting Professor Collaboration (Monterrey Campus)

In order to accelerate research collaboration between the Monterrey Tech's Biotecnology Center FEMSA and ASU's Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology, Monterrey Tech set up a Distinguished Visiting Professor Collaboration with Dr. Bruce Rittmann.  For a period of at least three years, Monterrey Tech will fund the salaries, research funds, and travel funds for two post-doctoral associates who will work jointly with Dr. Bruce Rittmann and Dr. Roberto Parra of the Biotecnology Center FEMSA. The initial focus of the collaboration is microalgae science and technology.
