The National Institutes of Health awarded San Diego State University a grant of nearly $20 million to build a center for medical research on health issues in San Diego and Imperial counties.
SDSU received the grant from the NIH’s National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, which supports schools that serve large populations of minority students. According to university officials, 31.5 percent of SDSU’s first-year undergraduate students are members of at least one underrepresented minority.
