Apr 23, 2009

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten
Gillibrand today announced $237,000 to upgrade and improve resources at the
Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychological Research. The funds will help move
forward on critical research and treatment to help improve the lives of all New
Yorkers, and are part of the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act,
which Senators Schumer and Gillibrand helped
pass earlier this year.

“Investing in these institutions makes sense in both the short run and the long
run,” said Schumer.  “Immediately it will create jobs and advance the Hudson Valley’s
position at the cutting edge of the medical research, while in the long run it
will allow our parents, grandparents, sons, and daughters to live longer,
healthier lives.”

“It is critical that we invest in the life-saving research
at our world class facilities in the Hudson Valley,” said Senator Gillibrand.
“Federal funding for this cutting edge research will help with medical
diagnosis and treatment while promoting economic growth in the Hudson Valley.
During these tough economic times, I will continue to work with Senator Schumer
to ensure that New York receives its fair share of federal dollars.”

The Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychological Research will receive $237,000
for research and treatment into schizophrenia.

Senators Schumer and Gillibrand are strong supporters of
President Obama’s economic plan. The investment will help create or save more
than 200,000 jobs in New York, while laying the foundation of future economic
growth with critical investments in health care technology, education,
infrastructure and renewable energy.
