Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Mar 06, 2018

The University of Michigan Center for the Discovery of New Medicines (CDNM) has awarded research funding to seven faculty members from across the U-M campus for new drug development projects. The goal of University of Michigan’s CDNM is to accelerate the path toward commercialization for novel and translational approaches to potential therapies. They do this by assisting investigators with financial support as well as providing guidance and expertise. Pilot grants of up to $50,000 are awarded twice per year. They are chosen based on scientific strength, commercial opportunity and unmet medical need.

UM Professor Tells Cells to Regrow Bone

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 04, 2016

Bioscientists are constantly discovering new methods to accelerate bone healing. First, we saw them use stem cells to regenerate ribs, and then we saw them add a protein that boosts bone regeneration. Both of these techniques involve introducing new and foreign substances into the body, which run the risk of rejection. A new study from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor shows that, in fact, cells already at the injury site know how to repair bone if you know how to remind them.

UMich Study Defends Against Viruses With Bananas

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 29, 2015

Though it’s common knowledge that fruits and vegetables are part of a balanced diet, life science researchers continue to find health benefits in these foods beyond what anyone expected. Take the case of Ohio State University, for example, who three years ago found out that apples can lower levels of bad cholesterol. A new study from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor suggests that bananas can fight off viruses we’d otherwise be susceptible to.
