WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $228,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for West Virginia University (WVU) to support clinical research related to neurological disorders.

“West Virginia University continues to be a national leader in medical research,” Senator Capito said. “I’m glad to see the university receive resources like these, which will help advance our efforts to better-understand strokes and neurological disorders. I will continue to advocate for similar investments needed to support our medical institutions in West Virginia.”

“Stroke is the fifth highest cause of death in West Virginia, which is why I am pleased West Virginia University is receiving funds to conduct research that will directly impact our fellow West Virginians. As WVU continues to lead in research across numerous fields, I will continue to advocate for funds that support their vital work,” Senator Manchin said.
