University of Minnesota Twin Cities | USA
The mighty Mississippi River winds through the home city of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Founded in 1851, the University has a presence throughout the state with its five campuses and numerous research and outreach centers. From the Crookston campus on the edge of the northern prairie to the newest campus, Rochester, less than 50 miles from the state's southern border, the University of Minnesota Twin Cities serves Minnesota’s families and businesses, while contributing knowledge and innovations to help build a healthier, sustainable world. With a graduate school established in 1905, the University of Minnesota Twin Cities has helped lead the nation in scholarship and higher learning. Life-changing work, like the recent creation of a beating heart and stem cell transplant to cure recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB), a once-fatal skin disease, shows the caliber of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities's research.
