New York plans to invest $20.4 million in stem-cell research.

Gov. David Paterson announced that $5.4 million will be earmarked to recruit research fellows to research institutions in New York. The remaining $15.4 million will be used to establish “multi-institutional research facilities” that will be shared by researchers from across the state.

“Investment in stem cell research is part of our vision to make New York a global leader in the new economy,” Paterson said.

New York State Health Commissioner Richard Daines, who is also the chair of the Empire State Stem Cell Board, said the funding will “ensure the best and the brightest new stem-cell investigators conduct their research in New York state.”

The governor put out two Requests for Applications. More detail on the applications, which are due Dec. 1, is available at the state’s Web site.

2009 CONCERN FOR HUNGER FUN RUN/WALK

In ALL ARTICLES on February 23, 2009 at 3:54 pm

Welcome to Fun Run 2009

THE 2009 CONCERN FOR HUNGER FUN RUN/WALK WILL TAKE PLACE IN CENTRAL PARK IN NEW YORK CITY ON SATURDAY, APRIL 18 AT 9:30 AM.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH OUR 2009 FUN RUN VIDEO AND TEAM CAPTAIN VIDEO BLOGS!

Last year’s fun run brought hundreds of friends and supporters together in Central Park. Together, we raised over $100,000 to help fight world hunger.

Want to make a real difference this year—love running or walking for exercise? Know someone who does? This is the event for you!

Each year, Concern Worldwide US kicks off spring with the Fun Run. Regardless of experience or age, all runners and devoted walkers in the tri-state area are invited to join us for our 4-mile Fun Run help Concern fight global hunger and make a difference in the lives of men, women and children who literally go to bed hungry every night.

This year’s Fun Run will support Concern’s fight against hunger in such countries as Ethiopia, Haiti, India, and Kenya, and more, where a global food and financial crisis has put already vulnerable families in serious danger. In fact, 100 million people who did not need food aid six months ago can today no longer afford to purchase food.

Just consider these facts:

● 923 million people suffer from chronic hunger

● 20 million children suffer from severe malnutrition

● An estimated 24,000 people die from hunger-related causes each day.

We can and we must work together to do everything possible to change this. Join us for just one weekend morning: every step you take will make a huge difference.
