U. Michigan: $1.5 Billion in Total R&D Helps Researchers Investigate Freshwater Algal Blooms

Posted by Dianna Matyola on Wed, Apr 17, 2019

Federal funding was recently provided to the University of Michigan in an effort to understand and prevent the occurrence of harmful algal blooms that fatefully impact freshwater globally. The $5.2 million federal grant supporting this algal bloom research project is part of the $1.5 billion in total annual research and development funding received by the university

While the major effects of these destructive algal blooms are not well understood they came under greater investigation when in 2014, the town of Toldeo, Michigan’s local water supply was contaminated as a result of an algal bloom in Lake Erie. The intention of project researchers is to increase and expand understanding of the toxins and chemical compounds associated with algal blooms and how they effect public health.

CBD Funding Lights Up Research Programs at Top Universities

Posted by Dianna Matyola on Tue, Apr 09, 2019

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, has been a topic of interest namely for its reputation of reducing chronic pain, inflammation, and discomfort. CBD is derived from a marijuana plant with at least 112 other unique chemical compounds, referred to as cannabinoids. Along with CBD, the other most commonly known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, well known for its psychoactive properties that leave consumers with a “high” feeling. CBD, however, doesn’t produce these same “high” affects, so its addictive risk substantially decreases, therefore increasing its appeal in the medical field. #CBD #cannbidiol #research #funding

New Technology Helps UMinn Scientists Study Adolescent Brain Development

Posted by Dianna Matyola on Wed, Apr 03, 2019

The long-term impacts of substance abuse and other related social and environmental factors on the developing  brain is not well understood. This gap in understanding is mostly a result of a lack of appropriate technology. However within the past decade, new technologies have become available that increase the safety and improve the method of neuroimaging, making this the right time in history to do a non-invasive study of the factors that have an effect on the development of the adolescent brain.
