Award programs selected for grant funding—LSDF 08-02

LSDF proudly announces its 08-02 grant competition, "Innovative Research Programs to Improve Health and Health Care," awardees. The health research initiatives will focus on advancing vaccine development, improving the potential of cardiac resuscitation technology, improving the delivery of mental health and substance abuse services in rural communities, and developing highly-targeted intracellular drug delivery mechanisms. Funding for these grant programs comes from Washington's allocation of bonus payments under the Master Tobacco Settlement, revenues arising from multi-state litigation with tobacco product manufacturers. This is the fourth group of grant awardees funded by LSDF.
