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:

  • Sliman Bensmaia’s research on building the sense of touch into prosthetic limbs (which we’ve covered extensively here at Science Life) was also featured this week in the Guardian.
  • A recent report from the Washington, DC-based Science Coalition, covered by the Tribune and the Sun-Times, highlighted the importance of federal government research funding at Chicago universities.
  • And microbiologist Jack Gilbert was on NPR’s Here & Now to talk about how to avoid the flu (spoiler: take your dog for a walk).
