Here’s a round-up of stories involving new science research at the University of Michigan:
A first-of-its-kind, real-time research funding initiative at the University of Michigan puts $15 million into the hands of professors to jumpstart new projects they believe in.
…new research from the University of Michigan Health System … [shows] that the bacteria that usually live in our digestive tracts compete against invading bacteria such as E. coli to help our bodies fend them off.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have identified new targets for drugs that could potentially treat anthrax, the deadly infection caused by Bacillus anthracis.
The team, led by David Sherman, the Hans W. Vahlteich Professor of Medicinal Chemistry in UM’s College of Pharmacy and a faculty member at the U-M Life Sciences Institute, found a new way to block the bacteria’s ability to capture iron, which is vital to its survival and its disease-causing properties.
