FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota State University is sharing in more than $3.8 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

The funding is to support research using nanotechnology to find solutions to issues such as food security, nutrition, food safety and environmental protection.

NDSU is getting nearly $150,000, one of nine awards.

In the past, a project by Cornell University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute led to development of new nanotechnology that could keep bacteria from sticking to medical equipment and food processing machinery.

U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says the funds will provide opportunities for more North Dakota students to engage in scientific research.
