USD receives grant from Health and Human Services

USD receives grant from Health and Human Services U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) has announced that The University of South Dakota will receive a $282,150 federal grant from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which was directed to the University by Senator Johnson.  The funding will come from the Health Resources and Service Administration within the HHS and will be used to construct an imaging facility for medical and biomedical research and to prepare and construct lab space for a specialized microscope.  "I pushed for this money in last year's funding cycle to ensure that the University of South Dakota continues to provide quality education while producing important cutting-edge research," said Johnson, member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.  "This facility at the Graduate Education and Applied Research Center in Sioux Falls will continue to help graduate students improve the quality of their research."  Senator Johnson secured the earmark for this funding in the FY 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act. It will be used by the USD-SDSU Health Alliance, to support students working towards a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or a master's in bioinformatics.
