Northern Michigan University develops U-M research fellowship

NMU has opened new doors to an exclusive collaboration between the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center and the Conrad Jobst Vascular Research Laboratories at the University of Michigan. As a result, NMU will be able to improve patient treatment and better educate the researchers of tomorrow.

Bringing this collaboration to Northern has not only increased NMU’s research capabilities but has also extended opportunities for students interested in science.

NMU senior Melanie Flaherty was offered a 10-week fellowship under U-M Dr. Jose Diaz last summer and began studying deep vein thrombosis, which is a blood clot that forms within the deep veins of the legs.
