Earlier this year, Dr. Elizabeth Loboa, the Dean of the College of Engineering at Mizzou, made an important discovery regarding the journey to finding ways to cure osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a condition that affects particularly older woman, causing their bones to break easily. Using and observing stem cells, Loboa was able, for the first time, to track the development of stem cells to bone cells in real time. This allowed her and her team to uncover an important pattern, and it shows clues to the next steps of fighting osteoporosis.
MU Chemistry Professor Silvia Jurisson and fellow researcher Alan Ketiring are currently experimenting with different elements, other than the commonly used Technetium, to image and treat cancer. Listen up to see more of their research, why their research matters, and their current status.
In this piece, take a look inside a section of Ellis Library, known as Special Collections. It’s more than just a section of rare books; it’s a valuable and precious resource of the Mizzou community and beyond.
