A multilayered mural painted in bold colors now hangs in the atrium of the Discovery Building, depicting the many facets of STEM research and inspiring new generations to engage in science. Painted QR codes make the mural interactive, drawing the viewer into the stories of renowned and lesser known Wisconsin scientists whose contributions have shaped society.
Activities will include experiments, live Q&A with scientists, demonstrations, performances, podcasts, behind-the-scenes tours and more — along with up-to-the-minute information on what researchers are learning about COVID-19.
The National Institutes of Health will provide $22.7 million over six years to create a national research and training hub at UW–Madison that will give scientists across the country access to this game-changing technology.
Morgridge Institute researchers are hoping to better understand what factors influence whether a patient will suffer from complications such as acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Wearable, smart technologies are transforming the ability to monitor and improve health, but a decidedly low-tech commodity — the humble toilet — may have potential to outperform them all.
The festival, held Oct. 17 through 20, will feature more than 220 events statewide ranging from fossil exploration and robotic engineering to animal encounters and the science of Star Wars.
Scientists at the Morgridge Institute for Research are one step closer to realizing their dream of creating artery banks with readily-available material to replace diseased arteries during surgery.
Researcher Jan Huisken’s vision is to redesign a high-end optical microscope — normally big enough to fill an entire room — down to the dimensions of a suitcase, with minimal loss of power or precision.
This is the first in a series of four videos about stem cell research at UW–Madison: how it started, what it's achieved, and where it's headed. Catch up on what's happened since James Thomson's prescient prediction that stem cells "will change medicine, period."
When Kaivalya Molugu was considering graduate schools, she knew she was interested in stem cell research, but she had to decide where to apply. The answer soon became clear: the place where it all began.
Dozens of interactive, hands-on exploration stations at the Wisconsin Science Festival's Discovery Expo at the Discovery Building on Thursday and Friday helped attendees learn about virtual reality, health and medicine, chemistry, astrobotany and more science topics.
“If UW–Madison is the birthplace of human embryonic stem cells, then the Primate Research Center is the cradle,” says Marina Emborg, director of the center's Preclinical Parkinson's Research Program.
The Morgridge Rural Summer Science Camp has allowed more than 500 high-academic achievers from across the state to spend a week learning from leaders in stem cell research, a field that UW–Madison helped make famous.
