With the oversight of the Office of the Provost for Biomedical Research, our faculty have uncovered the secret lives of prehistoric mollusks in Jordan, broken new ground on the use of Marijuana in the treatment of Parkinson's symptoms, and brought to light forgotten heroes of Nazi-occupied Europe. They present at conferences around the world and publish frequently.
