WASHINGTON D.C. - U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Ohio will receive more than $27 million in grants for the improvement of biomedical research facilities at Ohio institutions of higher education. The grants are administered by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

"These funds will ensure that our research institutions have the best possible facilities to produce cutting-edge scientific developments," Brown said. "These grants will help keep Ohio at the forefront of research development and will promote economic development."

The funds will help construct, repair, and renovate scientific research laboratories. The projects will support immediate construction jobs and will promote long-term economic growth.
