Medical School opens new Duluth campus research institute

The University of Minnesota Medical School—Duluth Campus has hired Mustafa al’Absi, Ph.D., as director of a new research institute that will foster collaboration among researchers from multiple biomedical and clinical disciplines at the University and at community health agencies.

“The overarching goal of the Duluth Medical Research Institute is to develop groundbreaking programs that can translate biomedical research discoveries into important clinical applications,” says al’Absi, who is nationally known for his research on the links between stress, addiction, and pain.

In September he and a national research team received a four-year, $1.6 million National Institutes of Health grant for collaborative research that will quantify the physical connection between stress and addictive substances.
