SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The National Institutes of Health is giving multimillion-dollar grants to two centers in the Dakotas.

The Children’s Health Research Center at Sanford Research in Sioux Falls is getting $11.6 million over five years, and the University of North Dakota medical school in Grand Forks is getting $10.5 million over that time.

The Children’s Health Research Center is a nonprofit formed by Dakotas-based Sanford Health and the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. Officials there are studying congenital defects and childhood diseases.

The UND medical school will use its grant money to support a biomedical research center.
