Blunt Medical Building in Columbia Opens

In Columbia, a new building is named for Senator Roy Blunt, a tribute to the attention and funding he has given to health research while he has served in Congress.

The Roy Blunt NextGen Precision Health building will house a newer type of research – and National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins explained its meaning – to a crowd of a few hundred dignitaries and scientists who attended the grand opening Tuesday.
