Podcast examines art museum's future, road taxes and neurodegenerative diseases

In the February 2010 edition of the "Iowa Insights" podcast, University of Iowa Pentacrest Museums Director Pam White talks about the UI Museum of Art's post-flood partnership with the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, the museum's presence on campus and the process of envisioning a new art museum.

Also in this edition, Jon Kuhl, researcher in the Public Policy Center and professor of electrical and computer engineering, speaks about his federally funded study of a mileage-based, road-user charge system that might one day replace the current motor fuel tax. And Internal Medicine Professor Beverly Davidson talks about her research to develop treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, using the blood brain barrier as a therapy delivery system.

"Iowa Insights" is a monthly audio magazine featuring interviews with some of the world's leading thinkers, researchers and teachers. The podcast is produced by the UI Office of University Relations.
