South Dakota University Wins $16.1M NIH Grant to Study Genomics, Proteomics

NEW YORK, Oct. 15 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institute of Health has awarded the Universityof South Dakota$16.1 million to help support R&D in genomics and proteomics.

 

The five-year grant, the largest biomedical research award ever awarded in the state, will help research and science at the USD and the following South Dakotainstitutions: AugustanaCollege, Black HillsStateUniversity, DakotaWesleyanUniversity, MountMartyCollege, OglalaLakotaCollege, and SissetonWahpetonCollege, according to a local news report.

 

 

The report said the grant will "create new opportunities and jobs throughout South Dakotaand continue efforts to make the state a top research center in proteomics and genomics."
