The People – The Impact

Through funding from the NIH, gene therapy may someday reverse the effects of mental retardation, and humanity may owe thanks at least in part to researchers like Dr. Beverly Davidson at The University of Iowa.

Using gene therapy to switch off genes instead of adding new ones could slow down or prevent the fatal brain disorder, Huntington's disease.

Beverly Davidson, Ph.D.

Professor of Internal Medicine, Physiology and Biophysics, and Neurology.


The People – The Impact

Through studies funded by the NIH and the Department of Defense,researchers like Professor Greg Gray at the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseasesseek to understand why some people experience animal-to-human transmission of influenza virus.

Identifying people at the greatest risk of zoonotic infection is a first step in providing them with special vaccines to prevent such infections and epidemics.

Gregory C. Gray, MD, MPH

Professor, Department of Epidemiology

Director, Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases


The People – The Impact

Steve’s project “Iowa Stories” from the Year of the Arts and Humanities set up “story swaps” around the state. The focus of Steve’s work along the Iowa Route is to create a broadcast of these community stories of Iowa life and culture.

Steve Thunder-McGuire, Professor and Program Coordinator, Art Education Department, and School of Art and Art History, and Teaching and Learning


The People – The Impact

University of Iowa space researchers Don Gurnett and Bill Kurth are leaders of a team recently selected by NASA to carry out the Juno mission to Jupiter scheduled for launch no later than June 30, 2010.

The focus of The University of Iowa’s participation will be a NASA-funded $12 million radio and plasma wave instrument.

The People – The Impact

Through studies funded by the National Institute for Nursing Research

(NINR), researchers at University of Iowa’s College of Nursing, such as Dr. Marita Titler, study the management of pain in older adults with hip fractures, a population that is likely to have acute pain.

This interdisciplinary endeavor brings together experts from The University of Iowa Colleges of Nursing, Pharmacy, Medicine, and Public Health and from The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

University of Iowa College of Nursing is the #2 gerontological nursing program in the country, as ranked by U.S. News and World Report.

Dr. Marita Titler, PhD, RN, FAAN
