The University of Rochester has been awarded two grants totaling nearly $4.5 million for cancer and heart research.

The university is to get more than $3.7 million to fund cancer research projects through the National Cancer Institute, and $742,413 to further develop treatment of Long QT Syndrome Type 3, a disorder affecting the heart’s electrical activity.

“We have some of the best research facilities in the world here in Rochester, and I know that this funding will go a long way in the hands of our top-notch scientists who go to work every day combating these serious medical conditions,” Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-Perinton, said Friday in a statement announcing the grants.
