The team has affirmed the approach in both the lab and the field.
ST. PAUL, MINN. ---- University of Minnesota researchers at the Minnesota Center for Prion Research (MNPRO) have developed a novel approach to field testing chronic wasting disease (CWD). The team confirmed their findings in southeast Minnesota the week of March 8th, 2021, making them the first-ever scientists to successfully deploy a CWD field test.
Researchers from three University of Minnesota colleges, including the College of Veterinary Medicine Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, and Scottish Rite for Children teamed up to determine if advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques that detect the dynamics of water molecules could detect early-stage bone damage in Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD). All bones need blood to function, and the human circulatory system is designed to deliver it.
