U.S. Congressman Jerry Costello (D-IL) announced today that Southern Illinois University Carbondale has been awarded a $72,750 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The funds will be used for a research project, directed by Dr. Dale B. Hales, titled "Fish Oil for the Prevention and Treatment of Ovarian Cancer."
"Scientific research results in many positive developments for society, and SIUC continues to distinguish itself by the quality of its academic contributions," said Costello. "I will continue to support these efforts."
