New Clinical Research Wing.—
The University of Arkansas Medical Center, Little Rock, has been awarded a $1,066,000 grant by the U. S. Public Health Service to help finance construction of a nine-story clinical research wing. The money will be matched dollar-for-dollar by private funds being raised within the state. The Medical Center now is composed of an eight-story hospital and a nine-story educational wing. A 10-story student dormitory and adjoining student union building are under construction. The federal grant for the research wing was one of four in excess of one million dollars in the USPHS announcement of a total of $30,000,000 awarded to medical institutions throughout the nation. The money was appropriated by Congress to expand health research facilities.
