Mondays, 3-4 pm, Rm 130 SMed

A collaborative effort of the Biomedical Sciences Department of the University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth campus and the College of Pharmacy Duluth to foster interdisciplinary collaborative research efforts and provide a mechanism for faculty and trainees to present their ongoing research.

Presentations by biomedical researchers on the Duluth Campus are scheduled on a weekly/semi-weekly basis and can include plans for a research project, preliminary data (data club style), a practice research talk, or journal articles with recent discoveries or techniques that would interest a broad range of scientists. Presentations are scheduled for 30-45 minutes followed by discussion.

If you would like to sign up for a presentation date, please contact Amanda Klein ( or Jean Regal ( for an available slot.

Brain Awareness

Initiated in 1996 by the Dana Foundation and the Society for Neuroscience, the Brain Awareness campaign is an international program designed to promote a greater understanding of the brain and its functions, as well as increase public awareness of the benefits and promises of neuroscience research.

The focus of the Brain Awareness program has been arranging presentations in elementary schools throughout Greater Minnesota and Wisconsin with hands-on activities to promote a greater understanding of the brain and nervous system.

Bridges to the Baccalaureate Degree

Bridges to the Baccalaureate Degree aims to increase the number of students in biomedical and behavioral science research, which can include the departments of biology, chemistry, math, physics, psychology, sociology and computer science. Our mission is to help students advance academically to pursue a baccalaureate degree and subsequently attain more advanced degrees. The program is a partnership between Lake Superior College, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, and the University of Minnesota Duluth.

Native American Mentoring Program

The Native American Mentoring Program aims to increase opportunities for Biomedical Sciences faculty and students to support our mission with a focus on Native American Health by increasing opportunities for research-based collaboration. This may include but is not limited to promoting science experiences for Native American graduate students. The objective is to expand the pool of current and future Native American scientists who may consider faculty or leadership positions in higher education or medical professions. This program is a viable way to demonstrate our commitment to Native communities in the state of Minnesota.
