Brown Announces Nearly $550,000 to the Ohio State University for STEM Research


WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 18, 2022 – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a $548,014 grant to The Ohio State University to support research to better understand how bones heal after an injury.

“We unleash more American innovation when everyone is able to participate and we nurture all Ohio talent,” Brown said. “This award will help The Ohio State University advance our knowledge and continue Ohio’s leadership in medical innovation.”

Brown has cosponsored the Supporting Early Career Researchers Act to establish a two-year pilot program at NSF to award grants to highly qualified, early-career investigators at independent, higher education research institutions for up to two years. This will help prevent research talent loss due to job market disruptions caused by the pandemic.

NSF supports research and education in all non-medical fields of science and engineering.
