Prof Christine Salomon's lecture 'Tales from the underground: Searching for biocontrol treatments for white nose syndrome in bats' drew a big crowd at University of North Carolina.

Prof. Christine Salomon worked with staff from the Bell Museum at the University of Minnesota to help conceptualize an interactive exhibit in the Solutions Studio. One of the goals was to engage the public with the creativity and engineering needed to do scientific field research. 

Robert Vince PhD, inventor of the AIDS drug Ziagen and one of the University of Minnesota's most prolific researchers, was honored at the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) 2018 Annual Conference as an NAI Fellow

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources first discovered White Nose Syndrome in Minnesota last year, and the disease continues to spread west. Professor Christine Salomon is a part of the team helping raise awareness about the state of bats in Minnesota. “One of the most important things we can do is protect habitat and build a new habitat for bats,” Salomon said.
