NIH Gives SDSU $20M To Help Boost The School's Work In The Health Sciences
San Diego State University’s quest to become an elite public research school has received another boost from the National Institutes of Health, which is giving the campus $19.9 million to broadly study human health. The grant also will help the university and its partners to identify and address the health care needs of under-served populations — an endeavor that earned SDSU a $10 million NIH contract two years ago. The new grant is among the largest ever received by SDSU, which is looking to expand and improve its fundamental ability to do such things as collect and analyze data, store bio-specimens and conduct surveys.
