Rhode Island Hospital lands $11.1M grant from National Institutes of Health
Date:10/29/2007

towards equipment, supplies and for renovating existing laboratories and research space at Rhode Island Hospital.

This $11 million federal grant speaks volumes about the world-class talent at Rhode Island Hospital and Brown University, Governor Donald L. Carcieri said. Not only will this grant enable Rhode Island Hospital and Brown University to develop cutting-edge biomedical research, it will also enhance the quality of life for those who suffer from chronic joint diseases. With these two institutions joining forces, I have every confidence that this grant will lead to great medical advances, breakthrough discoveries and important new preventative strategies.

I am pleased that RIH is receiving this $11.1 million in federal aid to establish the Center for Biomedical Research Excellence for Skeletal Health and Repair here in Providence. This COBRE grant is a recognition of Rhode Island Hospitals groundbreaking achievements and dedicated staff, said Senator Jack Reed, a member of both the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee and the Appropriations subcommittee, which oversees federal spending of NIH programs. This federal investment will allow Dr. Chen and his team to develop biomedical research that will help prevent and treat joint diseases such as osteoarthritis. Their work has the potential to improve the health and lives of millions of Americans who suffer from these common chronic illnesses.

Rhode Island Hospital and Brown University continue to take the lead on innovative medical research aimed at helping to improve the quality of life for all Americans, said Congressman Patrick Kennedy. This grant represents a substantial investment in not only treatment, but perhaps more importantly preventative medicine, to address common chronic illnesses that impact the lives of millions.

I commend Rhode Island Hospital for securing this $11.1 million grant from NIHs National Center for Research Resources, esp
