University of Minnesota BioResearch Product Faire™
Minnesota's life science researchers are invited to meet with lab suppliers to discover new lab tools and techniques this week at St. Paul's BioResearch Product Faire™ Virtual Event.
If you are a university researcher, professor, post doc, purchasing agent, principle investigator, life science grad student, research associate, research technician, or area local life science professional looking to attend the next event you will find valuable resources that will help you publish your next paper, network with other life science professionals, and keep in touch with your university's latest updates. Click the green button to find more information, or on the red one to attend to our show on the day of the event!
The University of Minnesota is investing $274,673,000 in new construction and remodel work of science buildings on the Twin City’s campus. They have broken ground on the new $108.6M Health Sciences Education Center. In addition, according to the 2018 Annual Capital Budget for U-Minn they have also approved $6,600,000 for the construction of a new Plant Growth Research Facility. The budget also includes $2,381,000 for the Institute for Health Informatics Remodel. Finally, the university will undertake an $8,400,000 renovation of the Biological Sciences Center.Read More

On average, 20 people die each day while waiting for an organ transplant, according to the United Network of Organ Sharing. However, scientists at the University of Minnesota envision a day when organ transplants from donors will no longer be necessary. Instead, failing organs will be replaced with ones created by specialized 3D printers. In a giant step toward that goal, researchers have manufactured lifelike artificial organ models using a custom-built 3D printer. These models mimic the exact anatomical structure, mechanical properties, as well as the look and feel of real organs. This research project is supported by two, five-year NIH grants that total over $2.6 million.Read More

Researchers at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities have created a new lab-grown blood vessel replacement that is composed completely of biological materials, yet contains no living cells at implantation. It is the first-of-its-kind nonsynthetic, decellularized graft that becomes repopulated with the recipient’s own cells after implanted. This discovery could help tens of thousands of kidney dialysis patients each year. It could also be adapted for use as coronary and peripheral bypass blood vessels and tubular heart valves in the future.Read More

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.Read More
The University of Minnesota has been awarded a five-year $8.2 million grant from the The National Cancer Institute (NCI) to develop a cell migration simulator that will predict how cancer cells move throughout the body.Read More
Study Shows Chemopreventative Potential of Kava-Derived CompoundSometimes, 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, commonly 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.
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common type of childhood cancer, affecting nearly 6 thousand children in the US annually. Recently, a possible relationship has been identified, which may provide valuable insight into why this cancer develops and how to prevent it.
