CHICAGO — U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) today announced $19,453,291 in biomedical research grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human social services (HHS) for institutions in Illinois. The funding, which comes from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will go toward research programs across the state to support medical advances in a variety of fields, from cancer prevention to mental health research.

“Investing in the development of new cures and treatments allows us to expand our understanding of the diseases that plague families across the country, which is why I have fought so hard for robust and sustained increases in funding for the National Institutes of Health” Durbin said. “This federal funding will give world-class institutions in Illinois the resources they need to help save lives.”

“By increasing support for medical research, we can help deliver real public health outcomes to Illinois families,” said Duckworth. “I will continue to work with Senator Durbin to ensure organizations and researchers have the federal support they need to improve research, provide accessible care and help save lives.
