State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced over $1.34 million in state funds for scientific research equipment and facility improvements at the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED).

“NEOMED is fast becoming a preeminent medical and research institution both in Northeast Ohio and across the country,” said Rep. Clyde. “This project helps deliver the state-of the-art facilities the university needs to continue to grow into the future.”   

$100,000 in state funds will go toward a new confocal microscope for the recently completed Research and Graduate Education Building, an 80,000 square foot state-of-the-art medical research facility at the Rootstown campus.

The remaining $1.24 million will be used for facility upgrades at the Building Administration Facility and the Gross Anatomy Teaching Laboratory. The facilities will become more energy efficient in the long-run, saving on utility costs long into the future.

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