Congressman Tim Ryan Announces $446,115 to Kent State University for Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biological Chemistry Research
Kent, OH — Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) today announces $446,115 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to be awarded to Kent State University. This federal investment will provide funding to the Research and Sponsored Programs, providing faculty and student researchers with resources for initiating, funding, and conducting research, presenting and publicizing findings, and bringing innovative technologies to market.
"I am excited for the future of Kent State University and their commitment to the research needed to move these important fields forward to provide for a better quality of life and economic development,” said Congressman Ryan. “I will always support these types of federal grants that help make those advancements possible.”
“We are very excited about the great potential for this interdisciplinary project to not only bolster the research capabilities in multiple fields at Kent State, but to enhance the teaching of our students in the burgeoning field of “Big Data” analysis”, stated Paul DiCorleto, Vice President of Research and Sponsored Programs. “The emphasis of this research directed by innovative faculty from Biological Sciences, Computer Sciences and Mathematics is on the use of novel analytics to answer important questions in human health and specifically, biomedical imaging. The methods that are developed, however, will be very useful for big data analysis in all fields of research.”
The Division of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biological Chemistry at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences supports research which hopes to improve the understanding of fundamental biological processes and discovering approaches to their control. Research supported by the division takes a multifaceted approach to problems in pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, and biological chemistry.
