By Alabama News Network

Alabama State University has been awarded a research grant of more than $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health.

School officials said Monday that the $1.54 million grant will be distributed over a five-year period. The grant was awarded to the school through the organization's Minority Biomedical Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement.
The program offers grants to universities serving students from backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral research fields.
Director of the school's Center for NanoBiotechnology Research, Shree Singh, will manage its grant-funded program with help from other ASU researchers.
Alabama State University is a historically black school that was founded by nine freed slaves in 1867. The university serves more than 5,500 students.
