[Source: UA News] – The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $15 million grant to build lab support facilities, immediately creating at least 250 jobs, as part of the planned expansion of the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix in partnership with Arizona State University.
“This grant will allow us to build a shared resource facility supporting all the great life-saving research going on at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus,” said Dr. William M. Crist, vice president for health affairs for the University of Arizona. “The NIH has acknowledged that our research in cardiovascular, cancer and neurological areas is critical to the development of the biomedical campus.”
The Phoenix Biomedical Campus is host to the medical college (an expansion of the UA College of Medicine in Tucson), ASU’s department of biomedical informatics and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen).
