Research Spotlight

Researchers from the University of Minnesota Center for Drug Design are getting closer to finding a solution to the problem of White Nose Syndrome affecting bat populations throughout the country. 

If there was a way to catch Alzheimer's earlier, to see its onset in the most nascent of stages, medical researchers postulate that would allow patients to access novel treatments earlier than ever before. 

Finding a viable treatment for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) continues to frustrate researchers around the world.

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities and Windgap Medical have received a $3.2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop a new device to quickly administer a recently developed antidote for cyanide poisoning.
