Battelle, Ohio State Plan To Study Heart Disease With Grant
October 17, 2002

Battelle Memorial Institute and Ohio State University Medical Center have been awarded a 6.5 million grant to study heart-related diseases.

The grant comes from the Biomedical Research and Technology Transfer Commission, which is distributing funds in Ohio from a 1998 multistate court settlement with tobacco companies.

Ohio State plans to study coronary artery disease and use its research facilities to help Battelle create diagnostic and therapeutic products.

Ohio State and Battelle announced earlier this year that they would collaborate on several scientific efforts.

Battelle is the world's largest independent, nonprofit research organization. Most of its work is contract research for the federal government.
