UW–Madison researchers have invented an all-chemical replacement for the confusing, even dangerous materials, now used to grow stem cells.
Scientists get funded for their ideas through a marathon grant-writing process, scores of collaborators, weeks of information gathering and a final product that often tops 250 pages. Melissa Skala’s experience was different: two people, 250 words, in 24 hours.
One of regenerative medicine's applications "is the ability to create human tissues and watch diseases occur in a dish, which is extremely powerful for developing new therapies,” says Randolph Ashton, a professor of biomedical engineering.
University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers have developed methods to observe gene editing in action, and they’re putting those capabilities to work to improve genetic engineering techniques.
