  • A renown Swedish health institute is giving the University of North Dakota medical school $1.9 million for a research project.
    The Karolinska Institute in Stockholm is investigating severe deep-tissue infections, including those that caused a global pandemic in the 1990s that killed thousands of people.
    UND's research will be led by Malak Kotb, an infectious disease and biodefense expert who last spring was named founding chair of the school's department of basic sciences.
    The Karolinska Institute is responsible for determining the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
