Dr. Brett Giroir, Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives, gave the commencement address at Texas A&M University-Galveston this past Saturday. Speaking to a group of 180 graduating Sea Aggies, Giroir spoke about the time-honored traditions that make being an Aggie so special, why that will be a source of pride and motivation for years to come, and how they can use the lessons they learned from being a part of such a unique institution to build a greater tomorrow for future generations.
Giroir also leads the Center for Innovation and Advanced Development & Manufacturing at The Texas A&M University System in College Station. As the principal investigator of the center, he was instrumental in establishing a $285 million contract with the federal government to provide 50 million doses of vaccines required to stop pandemics of influenza and to develop and manufacture all the vaccine therapies and antidotes needed to protect against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats.
