The University of Rochester has been awarded $2.9 million grant to study allergies and infectious diseases, officials announced Friday.

The grant, from the National Institutes of Health, will be used specifically to study influenza, said Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-Perinton.

“The University of Rochester does amazing research on infectious diseases, and I’m glad they have been selected by the National Institutes of Health to continue this critical work on combating influenza,” Slaughter said in a statement.

Influenza and pneumonia claimed more than 50,000 American lives in 2010, data from the Centers for Disease Control shows.
