$9.56M for heart research and the U.S. vice president are happening here

by Smith,Ukiah A last modified Feb 11, 2011 04:54 PM

Dear Friends of UofL,

    UofL will receive $9.56 million from the National Institutes of Health to head a multicenter cardiovascular research network. This new consortium of laboratories will revolutionize how scientists explore ways to protect the heart from damage during a heart attack. Read more about the five-year grant and UofL's Institute of Molecular Cardiology.

    Today, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was at the University of Louisville as part of the McConnell Center speaker series. After discussing Egypt's unrest and future, he tried to dispel four myths he thinks some Americans believe --
    • That government is broken
    • That international competition is overtaking America's lead
    • That the shadow of war will loom over us indefinitely
    • That these myths are inevitable
    It was a powerful and motivating speech. A link to his recorded presentation will be posted on my Facebook page soon.
