ANN ARBOR — U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) announced today more than $1 million in funding to support rapid response research on the coronavirus. The funding is part of the CARES Act passed by Congress in March. As of May 10, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued 10 CARES Act-funded awards in Michigan.
“Science and research are incredibly important at this time and will empower us to defeat this virus,” Dingell said. “We must always support science and it is great to see the University of Michigan is being entrusted to help lead these efforts.”
Michigan State University has also received funding for research. More information on NSF-funded programs and awards in Michigan can be found on the NSF state fact sheets.
