Sniffing out prostate cancer

Health and Life Sciences

IUPUI and the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center are using dogs in their prostate cancer research—proving again that these furry creatures really are man’s best friend. Researchers have found that trained dogs have the ability to sniff out prostate cancer molecules from urine samples. This could save many from receiving unnecessary biopsies as well as further the knowledge we have about the cancer.

Hidden gems, common space

Campus Success

You can find everything you need for life on campus at the Campus Center. It holds areas for student organizations to meet, great views of the city, game rooms, technology support, quiet areas, and even places to keep your things for the day. Take the time to venture outside the typical spots you visit at the Campus Center and try something new like renting a football or trying yoga.

Research aiding many

Faculty Success

Hearing loss is a condition that plagues nearly everyone as they age, but cell biologist Benjamin J. Perrin is looking to change that. Perrin is researching therapeutic cell-regeneration through a $1.9 million grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. This allows him to research the hearing loss at a cellular level through the study of and experimentation with sensory cells alongside his select team of IUPUI graduate students.
