URMC Awarded Parkinson's and DNA Research Funding
URMC is getting a million-and-a-half dollars in new federal grant funding for research projects into Parkinson's disease and DNA.
Congresswoman Louise Slaughter announced the awards, which come from the federal Department of Health and Human Services.
She is a member of the Congressional caucus on Parkinson's. In a statement released to WXXI, Mrs. Slaughter said, “Today’s announcement will bring Rochester’s world-class medical talents to bear on a devastating disease that inflicts pain and suffering on local families and many others throughout our country."
