MADISON (AP) -- The South Dakota Board of Regents says six faculty members at state public universities have been awarded competitive research grants totaling more than $438,000.

Paul Turman, the regents' vice president for research, says the grants will advance individual projects and strengthen the state's capacity for research and technology development. He says the six winners were selected from 52 proposals.

Turman says this is the eighth year the state has given financial support for grants to improve competitive research in South Dakota's public universities.

This year's grants were awarded to faculty members at the University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. The grants support research into cancer therapy, severe weather, electrical engineering and the effect of climate change on fish.

The Associated Press news brief reporting the grants did not identify the faculty members.
