"Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute   $0   $500,000".

(This amendment provides $500,000 the second year from the general fund to Hampton University for costs associated with creation of a Proton Therapy Institute. The facility, using what is widely acknowledged as the most effective method in the selective destruction of cancer cells, would significantly increase availability of the treatment: at this time, there are only three such therapy centers in the United States, with an additional three being built.)
