The Department of Health and Human Services has awarded $1 billion in stimulus-funded grants for 146 projects across the nation to construct or improve biomedical research facilities.

At least five of the projects primarily involve enhancing current information technology capabilities. Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, University of Delaware, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle will build advanced data centers.

Duke University in Durham, N.C., will build a specialized database. Loyola University in Chicago will expand its I.T. capabilities through new construction and renovation of facilities.

The National Institutes of Health's National Center for Research Resources administered the grants. More information and a list of grant awards is available at
