But one of the five research centers is focused on precisely the type of pollution generated by the mine spill, providing money to the University of New Mexico to conduct research on tribes affected by the mine water.
The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center will use the funds to examine how contact with metal mixtures from abandoned mines affects rural Native American populations through exposures related to inadequate drinking water infrastructure, reliance on local foods, and other uses of local resources to maintain their traditional lifestyle and culture, the announcement said
