Montana State University researchers developing improved technology for disease diagnosis

November 24, 2017View for printing

Montana State University researchers are working to develop a new technology that could make diagnosis of malaria and other diseases more accessible, potentially improving treatment for millions of people in areas with limited medical care.

Stephanie McCalla, assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, is leading a project to apply recent findings about the disease-detecting potential of microRNA -- small molecules that regulate a variety of cellular functions in the body.

With outdoor laboratories as close as Yellowstone National Park, MSU students have ample opportunities to pursue exciting projects throughout their college careers. These projects are not limited to the sciences, but also include artistic endeavors such as original musical compositions, paintings and architectural designs. The integration of learning and discovery is a hallmark of the undergraduate experience at Montana State University, which offers every student a hands-on research or creative project in his or her sophomore year. MSU has become a model university for combining these two critical aspects of higher education.
