WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), has awarded $3,379,827 to the University of North Dakota (UND). This grant will support pharmacology, physiology and biological chemistry research through the North Dakota IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE).
