Practicing Academic Medicine


In a story about the discipline of academic medicine, the U of M Medical School’s monthly feature “Where Discovery Creates Hope” describes the work of MSI PI Melena Bellin (professor, Pediatrics). Academic medicine combines both research and teaching. Professor Bellin uses MSI resources for research into islet transplantation as a treatment for diabetes.

The story can be found on the Medical School website: Bench to Bedside: How Academic Medicine Improves Patients’ Lives.
