The University of South Dakota (USD) has been selected as one of nine institutions to receive the shared $20 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.
The grant will go toward the funding of
medical research in four states.
“This project has a very worthy goal: to develop and guide
clinical and translational research across the northern Great Plains,” Dean of
the USD Sanford School of Medicine (SSOM) Dr. Mary Nettleman said. “Simply put, this
will help turn scientific discoveries into actions that directly benefit people
of the region.”
The program that provides the funding is run by the
Institutional Development Award (IDeA) and the NIH’s National Institute of
General Medical Studies. The grant will bring together nine institutions from
Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Kansas, forming the Great Plains
“USD researchers will have the opportunity to participate in
the two major programs that the grant will support, the pilot projects and the
scholars program,” Robin Miskimins, associate dean for research at SSOM, said.
“The pilot projects will focus on ways to take basic research findings and
develop medical treatment and practice. The scholars program will allow us to
add and train more researchers.”
