The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded more than $2 million in funds to Iowa institutions, including more than a half a million dollars to St. Ambrose University.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded $594,000 to SAU for health care facilities.

St. Ambrose spokeswoman Jane Kettering said the funds will be used for the college's new $11.5 million Health Sciences Education Center. She said the center has received a total of $1.6 million in federal funding thanks to Sen. Grassley, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa.

Other beneficiaries are Broadlawns Medical Center, Des Moines; Mercy Foundation, Des Moines; and the University of Iowa, Iowa City which received a grant for pharmacology, physiology, and biological chemistry research and a cooperative agreement for human genome research with the National Human Genome Research Institute.
