By Mike Krapfl, Iowa State University News Service

The research offices at Iowa State University and the University of Iowa have awarded five seed grants to help researchers on the two campuses collaborate and build joint bioscience projects. This year’s first round of grants will support development and studies of a skin-monitoring device, a molecular view of the immune system, magnetic stimulation of the brain to improve mental health, understanding the role of an Alzheimer’s disease-related pathway on epilepsy and diagnostic tests and treatments to fight Lassa virus in Africa.
