- An experiment in managing orthopaedic surgery cases has shortened patient stays and reduced the cost of surgery at University Hospital, one of the Health Science Center's teaching hospitals. Patients and health professionals both seem to be pleased.
- Microbiologists from the Health Science Center have produced evidence that the Shroud of Turin may be centuries older than its carbon date. If true, the findings would put in question the accuracy of the dates attached to many ancient artifacts.
- Social support systems are trying to keep pace with advances in drug therapy for schizophrenia sufferers. The new medications, pioneered in part by the Health Science Center, reduce the need for hospitalization and help patients re-establish their lives.
- Developments that help people: A oral medication that lets diabetics skip insulin injections, an experimental surgical technique that may stop coronary blockages from recurring, and a new MRI device that promises to deliver the best images yet of human brain function.
- The six recipients of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching blend a winning formula of making teaching an art and a science.
