Hoeven: NDSU Awarded with Federal Funding for Microbe Research

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that North Dakota State University (NDSU) has been awarded nearly $150,000 in federal funding. The funds, authorized by the National Science Foundation, will support research that seeks to understand how new adaptations arise and spread in populations.

“Our state has a great university system that empowers our young people to learn, innovate and achieve,” Hoeven said. “Research projects like this allow students to take findings from cutting-edge research to gain a better understanding of science, which is critical to not only their future careers, but also to advancements in the field as a whole.”

The funds are the first in a total of over $800,000 that NDSU will receive over the course of five years.
