University of Iowa gets $225,000 federal grant

 

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded a competitive grant of $225,000 to the University of Iowa.

 

The Iowa Republican says the university will use the funds to conduct research on diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic processes.

Each year, thousands of local Iowa organizations, colleges and universities, individuals and state agencies apply for competitive grants from the federal government. The funding is then awarded based on each local organization or individual's ability to meet criteria set by the federal agency involved.
