Science Cafe Features U of MN Clinical Research

Since CTSI kicked off its Science Café a year ago, more than 200 faculty, staff and community members have attended six different programs with topics ranging from heart health, to childhood obesity, autism and epilepsy.

Held quarterly from 7:30 to 9 am in the Coffman Memorial Union Mississippi room, the sessions are open to the public and free refreshments are served.

The April 29 program featured Dr. John Schousboe's collaborative cross-state research focused on changing the way practitioners treat osteoporosis patients to prevent fractures. Schousboe, M.D.,Ph.D., is the Medical Director of Research of the Park Nicollet Institute. He is an adjunct professor in the U of MN School of Public Health, division of Health Policy and Management.

On September 22, Chester Whitley, M.D., Ph.D., will present an overview of his research for curing lethal genetic diseases. Contact Christi Powers for more information about past presentations.
