Recently, three scientists from Europe and the United States received the Nobel Prize in chemistry for their work developing cryo-electron microscopy. U-M has one of the top cryo-EM labs in the country. In this video, Melanie Ohi, research associate professor at the Life Sciences Institute and associate professor of cell and developmental biology, and Michael Cianfrocco, research assistant professor at LSI and assistant professor of biological chemistry, explain how this technology is revolutionizing biology and how U-M is using it to study things like neurodegenerative diseases and bacterial infections.
Video game music
Matthew Thompson, assistant professor of music, is a classically trained pianist who teaches a popular course on video game music at U-M, and is considered a leading expert on video game music.

Taking on tinnitus
Millions of Americans hear ringing in their ears — a condition called tinnitus — and new research shows an experimental device could help quiet the phantom sounds by targeting unruly nerve activity in the brain. Watch this brief video about tinnitus and read more about U-M's research into treatment.
A look back on a big year
The start of a new semester marks the university's transition from its bicentennial celebration into the next phase of its third century. 2017 was a year of varied and exciting events and academic exploration, and a commemoration of all things U-M — its accomplishments, its history and the people who make it so special. This video takes a look back at some of the highlights of our yearlong 200th birthday party.
