MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — U.S. Sen. Al Franken visits the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis on Friday to visit medical research labs and speak at a conference.

The first-term Democrat delivers a speech at a conference on environmentally friendly chemistry at the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs.

Afterward, he will visit two university labs where researchers are studying genetics and stem cells to develop potential new therapies. The labs are the university’s Institute for Medical Genomics and the Cardiovascular Labs.
