Transforming the Future of Biomedical Sciences

Rick and Ginger Francis committed a historic gift to endow the fourth and final school at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso. Thanks to their generosity, the L. Frederick Francis Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences will transform research now and for future generations. Their commitment provides limitless pathways for students from the Paso del Norte region and beyond to make life-changing discoveries. 

Their tireless advocacy and visionary leadership to establish the only health sciences center on the U.S. Mexico border has created opportunities that will forever improve the health and well-being, economic growth, and advancement of our borderland community. 

This is an extraordinary gift through the Ginger G. and L. Frederick Francis Foundation in the Paso del Norte Community Foundation.  Thank you, Rick and Ginger, for your belief in our region’s future health care leaders and for your unwavering love of our El Paso community, for which you have been among our greatest champions.
