For 38 years, Strier has maintained a long-term study site on a protected reserve in southeastern Brazil near the city of Caratinga, in the state of Minas Gerais, where she studies a species of monkey known as the muriqui, often called the hippie monkey.
In new research, scientists in the UW–Madison School of Pharmacy reveal the genetic history of this beetle-bacteria partnership. This kind of genetic detective work can help researchers decide where and how to look for new drugs.
The edited cells are a step toward studying the degenerative neurological disorder in a primate model, which has proven elusive.
New research on dunes in China describes how even neighboring dunes can long remain in different and seemingly conflicting states — confounding the assessment of stabilization efforts and masking the effects of climate change.
To grow layers of single-crystal oxides for electronic components requires neighboring layers to interlock like Lego blocks. A new method throws out that limitation, producing new capabilities for data storage, sensing, energy technologies, biomedical devices and many other applications.
The award recognizes the department’s efforts to enhance underrepresented students’ access to and success in the chemistry graduate program.
A new study found that warming below the surface of the planet’s oceans is a significant contributor to ice sheet melt, particularly in the Antarctic, where a large portion of the ice sheet exists under the water.
As students, staff and faculty sift and winnow they produce a continual stream of visual documentation of their discoveries. The 10th annual Cooll Science Image Contest is soliciting the best visuals from members of the UW–Madison community.
Madison has become a hotbed of innovation and economic activity that is nearly unique beyond the coasts, with major developments in health technology, information technology, and biotechnology, according to a recent report.
