Date:5/20/2009

KINGSTON, R.I. May 20, 2009 The University of Rhode Island has been awarded a five-year, $18 million grant by a branch of the National Institutes of Health to strengthen biomedical research capacity in Rhode Island. One of the largest grants in the University's history, the grant is the third in a series of multi-million dollar awards the agency has given URI for this purpose since 2001, for a total of $42 million.

The grant was awarded to URI's College of Pharmacy by NIH's National Center for Research Resources, the same agency that awarded the University $8 million in 2001 and an additional $16.5 million in 2004. The earlier grants established a research network that resulted in the acquisition of key laboratory equipment and scientific collaborations among researchers at URI, Brown University, Rhode Island College, Providence College, Salve Regina University, and Roger Williams University. The program also reaches out to the Community College of Rhode Island for student training.

"Collaborative, multidisciplinary learning is a hallmark of the research and education experience here at URI, and this biomedical research program is a prime example of how successful this approach to problem solving can be," said URI President Robert L. Carothers. "The tremendous growth of this initiative and the exciting results it has already generated are a testament to the strength of our College of Pharmacy and the network it has built with other institutions around the state."

"During the next five years, this new funding will support biomedical and behavioral science research projects of at least 22 faculty from the network institutions," said Zahir Shaikh, URI professor of biomedical sciences and the principal investigator and program director for the grants since its inception.

The research focus of the new grant, entitled the Rhode Island Network for Excellence in Biomedical and Behavioral Research, will be on molecular tox
