Researchers hope that their findings, published today in the journal Cell Metabolism, may point to a potential new treatment that could be administered very early in the development of diabetes.
UW–Madison project combines art, policy and science to create plant-based plastics and benefit marginalized communities
A team led by University of Wisconsin–Madison scholars has a plan to turn paper mill waste into plant-based plastics, slashing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution and creating economic opportunities in ways that benefit marginalized communities.
Developing a hydrogen-based way to make pharmaceuticals aligns with renewed interest in a "hydrogen economy."
Being honored are Andrew Buller, assistant professor of chemistry, and Jose Israel Rodriguez, assistant professor of mathematics.
The UW–Madison professor's multidisciplinary approach to studying chemical and biophysical systems earned a $2.5 million award from the philanthropic organization founded by the former CEO of Google.
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.
New research suggests that the peptides — short chunks of protein — used to treat Type 2 diabetes may be more effective if they’re able to flexibly move back and forth between different shapes.
New research findings from the UW, NOAA and others may change the way scientists predict how cloud formation responds to changes in the oceans.
On August 12, leaders from the Wisconsin Departments of Administration (DOA), Financial Institutions (DFI), and Safety & Professional Services (DSPS) toured several campus facilities to learn more about the ways UW strives to create solutions that address some of today’s biggest sustainability challenges.
UW–Madison will join a first-of-its-kind collaborative network for nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which researchers use to probe large biological molecules like proteins and RNA.
While the approach hasn’t yet been tested in humans and researchers must further refine and test the system, it does provide a new strategy for potentially preventing or treating these common infections.
The technology, developed by UW–Madison Professor Weiping Tang and colleagues in the School of Pharmacy, could produce entirely new kinds of drugs.
New research aims to measure the pancreas’s entire suite of proteins. Ultimately, that data will advance research on pancreatic diseases like pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, or diabetes.
What's the difference between COVID-19 and influenza? What precautions should I take after potential buyers tour my home?
Physics professor Vernon Barger won the J.J. Sakurai Prize for Theoretical Particle Physics, and chemistry professor Martin Zanni was the recipient of the Earle K. Plyler Prize for Molecular Spectroscopy & Dynamics.
