ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The University of Alaska has received a grant, totaling $6 million over three years, from the National Institutes of Health, to build biomedical research infrastructure in the state.
University officials said the Alaska Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network will be formed by linking the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the University of Alaska Anchorage with other institutions in the state.
The grant will fund two teaching and research faculty positions, one each at UAA and UAF. Funds will also be used to bring scientists to Alaska for seminars and to send Alaskans to major research centers for special training.
