Palmer Receives $1.3 Million Construction Grant from Nat'l Center for Research Resources

By Editorial Staff
DAVENPORT, Iowa - The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research has been the recipient of several federal grants and is the principal institution through which federal money is funneled for chiropractic research.
In keeping with its aggressive pursuit of resources to increase that research, the Palmer Chiropractic University Foundation (PCUF) has been awarded a facilities construction grant for $1.3 million from the National Center for Research Resources, a division of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). Just over $1.3 million will be matched by the PCUF, for a total of $2.68 million approved for renovation and expansion of the existing Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research facility in Davenport.

In 1997, the NIH designated the Palmer Center as headquarters for the Consortial Center for Chiropractic Research (CCCR), a group of five chiropractic colleges and two state universities. The CCCR is supported by a $2.5 million grant award from the NIH National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. William Meeker,DC,MPH, is the principal investigator for the CCCR.
