M Research: News from the University of Michigan

Beyond the gum line

These are not your typical dentists. University of Michigan dental researchers work to rebuild human lips for wounded veterans. They study food preservatives and their ability to slow cancer. And they examine the relationship between heart attacks and oral health.

A metabolic puzzle

Researchers at U-M have uncovered more clues as to how a promising drug in clinical trials could help reverse obesity, diabetes and fatty liver disease.

Bulletproof battery

New battery technology being developed at U-M should be able to prevent the kind of fires that grounded Boeing 787 Dreamliners in 2013.

Trust your gut

A protein discovered in E. coli, a bacteria commonly associated with food poisoning and beach closures, may hold one of the keys to treating Parkinson's.

Baby on board

Using a rear-facing car seat until a child is two years old reduces their risk of serious injury, but almost three-quarters of parents turn car seats to face forward too early. 

Renewable power

Michigan could expand its renewable energy portfolio standard to 25 percent over the next decade at a cost of $2.60 a month for the average household.

Music from the heart

The striking rhythms found in some of Ludwig van Beethoven's greatest masterpieces may have been inspired by the composer's own irregular heartbeat.
