Love how these articles suggest the grants appear from the benevolent Federal government like mana from heaven. This is taxpayer money forced out of every hard working American via threats of fine or imprisonment. How moral is it to steal from one citizen and "grant" to another all the while taking out a healthy slice to run the government bureaucracy?

This is great news for the U home to the first transplant doctor in the US and other groud-breaking medicine. Glad to see that money is being spent in the research area again.

One will never lose faith in the ignorance of the masses by reading comments in the Star Tribune. I can only shake my head.

The only way Minnesota can achieve a robust economic future is by maintaining a great education system. Only the ignorant don't know this.

$51 million BORROWED FROM CHINA for this "free" grant to the U. What a joke. "Change we can believe in"

jrswan says, The only way Minnesota can achieve a robust economic future is by maintaining a great education system. Only the ignorant don't know this. That, or re-elect Obama who has really helped the economy, jobs, gas prices, home values. And don't forget Dayton. We need more taxes directed to education. Minnesota just can't pay enough.

I work at the U, and have seen what happens with these kinds of grants. Pet projects, favoritism, and bad science. I am all for research but this will not likely produce anything except more debt. Most of it will go to salaries of faculty. Faculty who are ridiculously over paid (i.e., senior faculty).
