More on the NIH Grants
Today’s grant announcement included 67 grants for IUPUI, totaling more than $2.3 million, with $100,000 in funding going to Indiana Nanotech. These awards will support the full spectrum of medical innovation—from basic research to clinical and translational studies. The Recovery Act-funded NIH grants focus on several areas, including heart disease, autism, HIV-AIDS, H1N1 Flu and cancer.
Much of this funding will also be dedicated to research applying the technology produced by the Human Genome Project between 1990 and 2003. This new funding will allow researchers to make quantum leaps forward in studying the genomic changes linked to cancer, heart, lung, and blood disease and autism– potentially leading to new treatments and cures.
