Welcome back to Communicators in a Cart featuring Chris Cook! This week he grabs coffee with Professor and Director of Texas Tech University's Center for Biotechnology & Genomics Dr Yehia Mechref

On this edition of Inside Texas Tech, we passed the microphone to Chris Cook, managing director of the Office of Communications and Marketing at Texas Tech University, to visit with President Lawrence Schovanec.
