Campuswide genetic science programs are helping researchers pinpoint new ways to treat heart disease, cancer, diabetes and more.
Basic Science and Laboratory Research
A discovery in hormone-producing cells could lead to a better understanding of diseases related to misfolded proteins.
A new understanding of the interaction among multidrug-resistant bacteria, and how antibiotics affect them, could lead to better infection prevention.
New research in fruit flies shows how insulin, pheromones, fertility and mating are all connected. Could this knowledge help us understand higher animals — including ourselves?
New U-M research has shown that pluripotent stem cells can self-organize into a structure similar to the amniotic sac, an early stage of human development. The discovery could be used to study why pregnancies fail.
