State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) announced Monday that the state has approved the release of capital funds to the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED). $14,646 will be used to purchase a fluorescence detector for the university's newly constructed Research and Graduate Education Building.

"NEOMED continues to grow as a research facility, expanding opportunities for faculty and students who are leading the way on important research," said Rep. Clyde. "NEOMED is a great asset to northeast Ohio, and I'm pleased to see support for the work they are doing."

Construction was recently completed on NEOMED's 80,000 square foot Research and Graduate Education Building and its accompanying 19,000 square foot Comparative Medical Unit. The university is in the process of purchasing equipment to outfit these new research centers, including a fluorescence detector. The fluorescence detector produced by Shimadzu is a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that has a wide variety of applications in medical research.

NEOMED is an internationally recognized research and teaching institution training health professionals and medical researchers. The university is transforming its 450,000-square-foot campus to accommodate growing class sizes and enhance research facilities.

Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and Central and Southern Portage County.
