Mayo picks up stimulus money for medical research

Federal stimulus money coursing through the veins of the American economy is making its way to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

So far, about $6.7 million has shown up to fund 32 research grants at the medical center, reports the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

One of the grants is for $780,000 to study the genetics of a type of brain injury.

Mayo is no stranger to federal research grants, the paper said.

The National Institutes of Health gave the clinic $178 million in grants in 2007; in 2008, it was $169 million.

Even including the $6.7 million in stimulus money, NIH has sent only $35.6 million in grants to Mayo Clinic this year, although officials there anticipate more.
