Research Stories

Concussion discussion

With a national clamor for more information on head impacts in sports, the University of Delaware is positioned directly in the middle of the concussion discussion.

Peering into cell structures

A University of Delaware research team led by Tatyana Polenova and colleagues from the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope have revealed for the first time, atom by atom, the structure of a protein bound to a microtubule.

Launched in 2011, the UD-Fraunhofer CMB six-year partnership combines the strengths of the Fraunhofer Center for Molecular Biotechnology in applied translational research and of UD in basic research. Centered in the life sciences, the collaboration seeks to provide innovative, interdisciplinary programs and to create educational and economic benefits for the state.

Applications are due June 3; detailed proposal guidelines are available online.
