ISU Review Paper Shows Training Blood Vessels May Help Protect Against Heart Attack, Stroke
A growing number of studies indicate bouts of reduced circulation with a blood pressure cuff may help reduce tissue damage and prevent the worst outcomes of heart attacks and strokes. James Lang, Iowa State assistant professor of kinesiology at Iowa State, consolidated the findings from nearly 100 studies – some of them his own – in a review paper recently published in the Journal of Physiology.

Voices in Research
“Many AMR mitigation strategies have been studied in isolation, but our project will take a big-picture approachto studying the complex links between agriculture management decisions and environmental and health impacts. Only through an integrated approach can we determine data-backed best practices to share with agricultural producers.”
Michelle Soupir, professor, Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering
“While the artists worked together on the concept, they maintained their individual styles. This, plus the mix of photographs and canvases they attached directly to the corner store’s wall, created a collage effect. Public art makes visible the cultural and historical textures of places that otherwise can easily get replaced by urban development.”
Margaret LaWare, associate professor, English
“I wanted to bring together a strong group of scientists to establish a coalition supporting the development of mung bean as a healthy and sustainable plant-based protein crop here in mid-west. These researchers will provide critical insight into the development of the crop, crop production and management, and genomic information. We are taking a wholistic approach to ensure that we can cater to the needs of farmers and a rapidly growing industry.”
Arti Singh, assistant professor, Agronomy
