WASHINGTON, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), the senior Democratic Appropriator for federal science agencies and a Congressional champion for neuroscience, announces that two universities in Philadelphia will receive $939,854 in grants for neuroscience research projects from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The University of Pennsylvania will receive $601,885 from the National Institute of Mental Health to study a link between olfactory neuro-imaging and the risk of schizophrenia, Fattah said. He also announced that Drexel University will receive $337,969 from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke for clinical research on neurological disorders. 

"Our great research institutions in University City are respected nationwide as pace-setters in neuroscience," Fattah said. "These federal research dollars help Penn and Drexel maintain their leadership." 

Fattah, a senior Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, is the author of the Fattah Neuroscience Initiative. The initiative, approved by Congress, has led to establishment of the Interagency Working Group on Neuroscience at the White House to explore and coordinate the current state of federally funded neuroscience research.
