NTC Honors Frank

During its annual briefing to Congress, the National Textile Center (NTC), Spring House, Pa., recognized US Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) for his outstanding leadership and support.

NTC - a research consortium of eight core universities including Auburn, Clemson, Cornell, The Georgia Institute of Technology, North Carolina State, Philadelphia, University of California Davis and University of Massachusetts (U Mass) Dartmouth - is funded by a grant from the US Department of Commerce. It has requested $13 million for fiscal year 2005 to allow it to increase its interaction with industry experts and its emphasis on homeland security-related research.
