LETU Receives Money For Knee Research

LeTourneau University in Longview has received thousands of dollars in grants for knee research. Dr. Roger Gonzalez's biomedical research class now has enough money for technical equipment to study how the effects of a torn ACL or ligament in the knee can result in osteo-arthritis.

Students say participating in such research is a great opportunity. "I'm really excited because it's going to fund a lot of interesting tools, tools I've never used before and as an undergraduate it's really neat to have an experience to use things like that most undergraduates don't have access to just because of funding," says LETU senior Matthew Wisher.

LeTourneau University received the grant for nearly $207,000 from The National Institutes of Health.
