Now with the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation Sample Preparation for Cellular Cryo-ET Award, University of Michigan researchers will open new windows into the cell, transforming how biologists can see and learn from these atomic-level structures. Life Sciences Institute faculty members Michael Cianfrocco, Melanie Ohi, Janet Smith, and Shyamal Mosalaganti will lead a new project to expand access to cryo-electron tomography at U-M
STORIES OF IMPACT
The SEAS Sustainability Clinic is made possible through support from The Kresge Foundation, which has committed $1 million in funding over the next three years. Its goal: improve the ability of the City of Detroit and nonprofits serving the City to address the impacts of climate change on the natural and built environment, human health, and the city’s finances—while working to enhance sustainability policy and action.
The success of the University of Michigan team could lead to the integration of quantum information and communications technologies with conventional computers—as well as advances in high-precision sensing and more sustainable UV lamps for sterilization and air purification.. Early research undertaken related to this project was partially funded by the W.M. Keck Foundation. The foundation’s funding helped with essential ‘proof of concept’ gains.
Ilene Forsyth, professor emerita and alumna of the University of Michigan, will donate $6.25M to LSA’s Department of History of Art. The gift will expand U-M’s global reach in art history studies through a new distinguished professorship and visiting graduate student fellowship.
University of Michigan researchers were recently awarded a $1.1 million grant extension to answer what the impact of liberal arts education is on students' lives.
Tim McKay, LSA associate dean for undergraduate education and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Physics, discusses what LSA is doing to make basic science education more inclusive and why he thinks basic science starts with curiosity.
