The recently opened addition to the Chemistry Building on University Avenue is a nine-story tower housing lecture halls, an information commons, offices, teaching laboratories, and group write-up spaces for undergraduate teaching labs.
Forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Hurricane Center will have access to the most advanced storm measurement software yet to help them save lives and property with timely warnings.
A team of UW–Madison mechanical engineers have pioneered the integration of several imaging technologies into a system that can study the fundamental mechanics of electron beam powder bed fusion in real time.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. Mark Pocan showed their support of UW–Madison on April 15 during stops at the West Madison Agricultural Research Station and the UW Odyssey Project in the UW South Madison Partnership office.
Assistant professor Michael Maseda was one of many who contributed to development of the James Webb Space Telescope. He looks forward to using the instrument to take “baby pictures of galaxies” — potentially looking as far back into the history of the universe as the Big Bang itself.
Not only did researchers find that the apps gather audio data while "mute" is activated; they could identify activities picked up when microphones weren't believed to be on, such as eating, playing music, typing and cleaning.
Each university in the country may nominate up to four undergraduates for the annual award. To have all four candidates win is remarkable.
People of all ages got their hands dirty and their brains revved up as part of Science Expeditions, an annual open house to illustrate the value — and fun — of scientific research on campus.
Building upon previous work, researchers are revising their understanding of the relationship between Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation and freshwater from melting polar ice.
The gel, tested in mice, releases drugs and special antibodies that simultaneously deplete immune-blocking cells called macrophages from the surgical site and activate T cells so they can attack cancer.
Most human diseases don’t start — or end — with our species. Only by looking at the whole picture can scientists like UW–Madison's Tony Goldberg uncover the full story of viruses on Earth.
An international team of researchers led by UW–Madison biologists has assembled the largest evolutionary tree of scorpions yet, showing seven independent instances in which the distinctive eight-legged creatures evolved venom compounds toxic to mammals.
Preventive medicine chief resident Devlin Cole from the UW School of Medicine and Public Health explains why discontinuing masking does not put us at risk of contracting infections that are more severe.
A UW study is asking dog owners what their pets like to watch — a nontrivial question that could lay the groundwork for developing better canine eye tests.
The Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is prepared to assist with a surge of testing that will help prevent the spread of the virus as birds and eggs are moved around the state, and researchers are also developing a vaccine to prevent future outbreaks.
UW researchers have discovered a way to enable a prominent additive manufacturing technique called laser powder bed fusion to produce metal parts that have significantly fewer defects.
