The NNTRC Laboratories and Offices are located in A.L. Kleberg Hall at Texas A&M Unviersity-Kingsville. Renovated in 2006, the former engineering building became home to a state-of-the-art venom research facility instrumentation for the screening, testing and cloning of snake venom molecules.
At the NNTRC, PhD researchers work side by side with graduate, undergraduate and high school level students, giving them hands-on experience and a unique chance for one-on-one mentoring in research proceedures and practices. Working together, the researchers and students study the medically important properties of the venoms, learn and design new methods for increasing the yeilds of important molecules throgh cloning techniques and even work on submitting data to peer reviewed journals. Researchers and students also present their work at applicable seminars and symposiums.
Venom research has been performed at the University for over 38 years, and has resulted in many publications and collaborations.
