Ferris State University received a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services’ National Cancer Institute.
The grant of $385,406 will support cancer research at Ferris State.
Congressman John Moolenaar is Michigan’s only member of the House Appropriations subcommittee with oversight of the Department of Health and Human Services said the grant Ferris recieved is much deserved and colleges around the state should be commended for all the great work they are doing.
"Colleges and universities in mid and northern Michigan are doing critical research and that’s why I have successfully worked to pass record funding for federal research in the fight against cancer. I hope this grant will help Ferris State make a positive contribution to the worldwide efforts against this disease,” said Congressman Moolenaar.
The technical name of the grant project is “Combinatorial Biosynthesis and Metabolism Studies of Novel Tetracenomycins” and it was awarded to Professor Eric Nybo.
