WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced today that Ohio hospitals and universities will receive more than $14 million in funds through competitive grants administered through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that will support biomedical research and training. The funding, which was available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) will invest in research at institutions in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo, and Dayton.

“This funding will help hospitals and universities to continue biomedical research efforts,” Brown said. “These funds will support research to lead the fight against the nation’s most critical health challenges while creating jobs in the process.”


A 2008 study by the National Institute of Health approximates that each dollar invested in universities and hospitals can generate more than twice that amount. Ohio was a top-ten leader in economic activity created through NIH funding in 2007.
