Researchers at IUPUI have been awarded more than $22.3 million in grants by the National Institutes of Health, according to U.S. Rep. Andre Carson (D-Indianapolis).

The money is part of a $5 billion program that was part of the federal stimulus bill approved earlier this year, and will fund medical research across the country.

IUPUI received 67 grants in all, which will fund research on heart disease, autism, HIV-AIDS, H1N1 flu and cancer, among other areas, according to Carson. One Indianapolis-based start-up, Indiana Nanotech LLC, will receive $100,000 to support its experimental products in dentistry and orthopedics.

“Today’s announcement is both a life-changer for our work force, as well as a life-saver for families and individuals who will benefit from future innovation and research supported by these grants,” Carson said in a statement.
