The federal government has allocated over a million dollars to Washington State University to improve a Pullman lab that researches infectious diseases.
The money is in the 1.7 trillion dollar federal spending bill that was signed by President Joe Biden last month. According to a post on the institution’s website, 1.36 million dollars has been earmarked for the Paul G. Allen School for Global Health. The funds will be used to improve the school’s biosafety level 3 laboratory in Pullman. The lab supports WSU’s infectious diseases research and pandemic response capacity.
