WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Steve Cohen announced Thursday that a $450,423 research grant from the Department of Health and Human Services has been awarded to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in downtown Memphis.

The grant comes through the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and focuses on studies that investigate the role played by an important immune cell, the T cell, in a variety of different infections, including influenza virus.

“This funding will be used to continue important research at St. Jude, one of Memphis’s finest health care institutions,” Cohen said.

Founded in 1962, St. Jude is one of the world’s leading children’s cancer research hospitals and is focused on finding cures and saving children from cancer and other deadly diseases.
