The UI will receive approximately $2.6 million in National Institutes of Health funding for biomedical research, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, recently announced.

Funding is provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and Economic Recovery Package, most commonly known as federal stimulus funding, according to a press release.

Harkin chairs the appropriations subcommittee that funds the NIH and worked to get $10.4 million for medical research throughout the U.S.

Grants awarded by the NIH are used for biomedical research and research training at more than 3,000 U.S. institutions, according to a press release.

Funding awards were distributed to various UI projects including cystic fibrosis, electric and acoustic hearing, molecular stimulation and analysis, gene expression, and preventative dental visits.
