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.
