Minnesotans are less likely than the average American to die of heart disease. The reason? Likely because, compared with national averages, Minnesotans smoke less, and fewer of us have high blood pressure.


University of Minnesota researchers have developed a new method for creating induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS), which can differentiate into many different types of the cells in the body and are used in medical research focused on diabetes, cancer, and many other diseases. This new process will dramatically speed up the creation of iPS cells and improve their quality, which could accelerate the treatment of many otherwise incurable diseases.
