    Strange federal grant to ISU.

    I found this very short article on omaha.com:

    Omaha.com - The Omaha World-Herald: Metro/Region - Federal medical grant for ISU

    On the surface, this seems pretty straightforward, with the feds giving ISU a grant to study a medical issue. But, Iowa State has no medical school. So how is this going to be pursued? By the VetMed college?

    does ISU have a developmental biology department/focus?

    I googled some of those terms:

    Immunocompetency: The ability of the body to perform a normal, functioning immune response.

    neonate: a newborn child

    So, the molecular biology department does research on immune systems of newborn babies?

    I guess I don't understand why it's so strange that an Immunobiology program got a grant to study immune systems in newborns?

    Could very easily be at Vet Med. There are many animal models of human disease and development.
