Minnesota Researchers Produce Biofuel From Agricultural Waste

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 11, 2016

We’ve seen life science researchers, like Professor Wyman of UC Riverside and Professor Reguera of Michigan State University, master the production of biofuels from biomass sources, such as corn and sugarcane. However, a controversy is brewing around such practices. Critics worry that utilizing these organic materials will substantially detract from the global food supply. Here to answer those concerns is a new study from the University of Minnesota that instead uses agricultural waste as its biomass.

Regrowing Nerves with 3D Printing at UMN

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Sep 24, 2015

Until recently, nerve damage has been considered irreparable and impossible to treat. Only now are we seeing breakthroughs in nerve care such as Washington University’s study on preventing axon degeneration and UC Irvine’s study on regenerating nerves with salmon protein. Taking things one step farther, a University of Minnesota, Twin Cities research group has developed a method to foster nerve regrowth using 3D printing.

Burning Fat at Squirrel Speed in Minnesota

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Apr 24, 2014

As the weather warms up, many people are beginning to try to burn their extra fat using every trick and technique in the book. Meanwhile, the brown squirrel burns fat overnight as it sleeps. University of Minnesota researchers stumbled upon this unique strategy while studying squirrel hibernation, and are now delving into the genes that control the process.

Researchers at U of M Design Nicotine Vaccine

Posted by Sam Asher on Fri, Jul 05, 2013

Yesterday the police were on high alert, cracking down harder than ever on the sale, possession and use of illegal fireworks. But every day, several Americans light up something far more lethal. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, and remains so dangerous largely due the addictive properties of nicotine. In an effort to curb that dependency, researchers from the University of Minnesota are developing a vaccine that will grant immunity to nicotine.

New Physics and Nanotechnology Research Building Rising at UMinn

Posted by Katheryn Rein on Wed, Aug 08, 2012

Physics and nanotechnology research at the University of Minnesota has outgrown its 80-year old facility and prompted the construction of the 144,000 sf state-of-the-art building that is now rising on campus. (See the live webcam footage.) The previous home to the Physics Department, the Tate Laboratory, can no longer support the advanced research carried out by more than 150 faculty and graduate students there, nor is it adequate for a field (nanotechnology) that has only relatively recently come into being. The new $83M lab research facility will allow the physics and nanotechnology departments to move forward in this century as well as join forces in collaborative research projects.
