Charleston, WV – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $341,768 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to Marshall University for diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic research.

“West Virginia and our universities continue to lead groundbreaking research. I am pleased HHS is investing in Marshall University diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic research that will help us better understand internal medicine and diseases. I look forward to seeing the impacts of this important research, and I will continue to advocate for funding to help research projects in the Mountain State succeed,” said Senator Manchin.
