Federal funding to support clinical research for neurological disorders

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded more than $175,000 to West Virginia University (WVU) to support clinical research related to neurological disorders. 

“Earlier this year, I visited WVU and saw the amazing research being conducted there,” said U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va. “I’m so glad HHS recognizes their tremendous effort and awarded WVU this grant to help them continue their valuable work related to brain traumas. WVU remains a leader in neurological sciences, and I’m so pleased to see these funds aid such important research.” 

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., added, “Great strides have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous medical conditions, however neurological disorders remain an area where more research is needed. 

“In order to better understand and fight back against these disorders, we must conduct clinical research to best establish therapies, and I’m incredibly proud that West Virginia University is leading in this area.”
