Welcome to LabBook, our weekly roundup of University of Chicago Medicine & Biological Sciences research news from around campus and the internet. Each Friday, LabBook will recap the week on the blog, with links to news stories about our faculty and their research.

This week on the blog:

From our partner blog UChicago Cancer Conversations:

Research in the news:

  • Stretching a little further into the field and back in history, this week Heather Augustyn from the Northwest Indiana Times, wrote about Henry Chandler Cowles, a professor at the University of Chicago during the late 1800s and early 1900s who helped to establish the field of ecology after studying the biodiversity of the Indiana Dunes.
  • And don’t think you can slip past an old dolphin friend and act like you didn’t see him. Research by UChicago biologist Jason Bruck showed that dophins can recognize the distinct whistles of former tank mates up to 20 years after being separated from them. Bruck’s work was covered widely by NBC News, Time, Scientific American and NPR, among many others.
