State officials in Hartford have announced more than $3 million in grants from Connecticut’s Biomedical Research Fund. The awards will support nine research projects conducted by researchers from the UConn Health Center and Yale University. They were presented by Democratic state Senator Joseph Crisco and Public Health Deputy Commissioner Lisa Davis in a news conference Thursday. The Biomedical Research Fund was established by Crisco in 2000 to redirect revenues from the state’s tobacco settlements to research into causes and possible cures for heart disease, cancer, and other smoking-related diseases.
