Minnesota Research Shows Potency of Kava Against Lung Cancer

Posted by Sam Asher on Fri, Apr 08, 2016

Study Shows Chemopreventative Potential of Kava-Derived Compound

Sometimes, the most simple and elegant solution to a problem has already been known for centuries. University of Minnesota researchers have explored the medicinal capacity of an ancient plant -  Piper methysticum, c ommonly known as kava. However, concerns about kava being toxic to the liver have resulted in diminished use. Now, a recently published study has found that a specific kava derivative may have potential to combat cancer without causing any damage to liver cells.

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.

UMN Graduate Students Win $10K Prize For Biodegradable Foam

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Dec 17, 2015

To avoid clogging up our oceans and land space, companies and researchers have been trying for years to focus on producing biodegradable materials. We saw a University of Illinois team devise a method to convert plastic bags into biofuel just last year. Now a team of graduate students at the University of Minnesota has created a polyurethane foam that is biodegradable.

Fighting Blood Clots With Hibernation at Minnesota

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Apr 23, 2015

 The human body does not respond well to a sedentary lifestyle. In the most severe cases, lack of activity can lead to atrophied muscles, blood clots, obesity, and even heart failure. However, bears hibernate for months on end and emerge in the spring perfectly healthy. Researchers at the University of Minnesota are unraveling the biology of this seemingly simple achievement to gain insight on how we can avoid these symptoms.
