Robust Research Funding at University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Leads to Breakthroughs

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Apr 19, 2017

When it comes to research the University of Minnesota has a lot going for it. Their 4,000 faculty include members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine, as well as the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. U of M ranks 8th among public universities in research spending, with more than $870 million spent annually. In 2016, over $243M of that research funding was awarded by the National Institute of Health.

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

"ALCOHOL IS SO 2014. TRY KAVA!

suggests a sandwich board on Tenth Street between First Avenue and Avenue A, in the East Village.

Sometimes, the most simple and elegant solution to a problem has already been known for centuries. In 2014, University of Minnesota researchers 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.

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.

UMN Bioscientists Explore HIV Immunity

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Nov 27, 2014

The human immunodeficiency virus, known more commonly as HIV, is still at large today. With no known cure, the most researchers have been able to do is mitigate the effects of the virus. However, there are certain people who, despite being exposed to HIV, simply do not get infected. A team of biologists at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities set out to find whether genetic differences play a role in this “immunity” to HIV.

Minnesota Bacteria Eat Chlorine Waste

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Sep 05, 2013

When we jump into the swimming pool for some last-minute summer revelry, the worst part of getting out is the feeling of residual chlorine on our bodies. The environment doesn’t respond well to chlorine either- several synthetic chlorine-based compounds are toxic when released into nature and have taken part in the development of numerous superfund sites. Fortunately, a team from the University of Minnesota’s BioTechnology Institute is working on a way to clean up this chlorine, with help from some hungry bacteria.
