In celebration of the Wayne State University School of Medicine's 150th anniversary celebration, the Shiffman Medical Library will host "Warrior Medicine Impact: Discoveries that change lives" throughout the month of October.

This is the final of three exhibits the School of Medicine will present in 2018 to observe the sesquicentennial anniversary.

The exhibit will highlight the groundbreaking and impactful research discoveries made by scientists at the School of Medicine since its founding in 1868, including the discovery of the drug AZT as one of the first successful medical treatments for HIV and AIDS; the discovery of a balloon device for angioplasty, the use of a low-cost, patient-applied gel to reduce the risk of premature births, the discovery of zinc's role in the human diet, an algae that can restore vision and more.
