Dartmouth researchers receive $5.9 million grant from NIH for lung research
Date:9/30/2013

Hanover, N.H.The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a $5.9 million grant to support an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Lung Biology Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.

"He has built a center that translates the best basic science into clinical application, and which also supports core facilities that sustain our researchers."

With the federal budget sequester taking a toll on biomedical research nationally, this five-year grant award reflects recognition of the quality of the medical research being done at Dartmouth, and provides the resources necessary to support the core services and pilot programs that will enable the Center to continue its work.

"Their approaches are closely aligned with the goals of the Dartmouth SYNERGY Program in Clinical and Translational Science, which focuses on moving therapeutic advances from the rese
