HARLINGEN - UTRGV will break ground on The Institute for Neuroscience, an interdisciplinary institute within the UTRGV School of Medicine, on Wednesday, Nov. 6, in Harlingen.
The world-class clinical and research site, located at Haine Drive and North Whalen Road, will house clinics and diagnostic centers for numerous neuropsychiatric and aging disorders, as well as leading the way in clinical and laboratory research for the Rio Grande Valley.
