USC, MUSC, Clemson awarded $6 million in matching lotto research funds

South Carolina LotterySouth Carolina Lottery: USC, MUSC, Clemson awarded $6 million in matching lotto research funds
South Carolina's three research universities will work together on a project to produce human tissue and organs with the help of $6 million in state lottery funds.

The University of South Carolina, Clemson University and the Medical University of South Carolina were told by a state committee Monday they could begin raising private dollars to match the state funds.

The project is part of the state's endowed chair program. It was created by the Legislature last year by using $30 million in lottery money to help the schools recruit leading scientists.

The research they produce is expected to jump-start the state's economy by drawing high-tech businesses. The announcement came as a surprise to school officials who expected to hear about the award next summer.
