Thirty-two members of the UW–Madison faculty have been awarded fellowships from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, spanning the arts and humanities, physical sciences, social sciences and biological sciences.
A new NASA collaboration of astrobiology researchers co-led by a UW–Madison professor will spend the next five years dedicating their efforts to understanding how life evolved on earth, and how it possibly could evolve on other worlds.
A team of scientists and the National Science Foundation shared images of Sagitarrius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
The new research details the framework for designing a network of AED-outfitted, autonomous flying drones, which could allow the life-saving devices to more quickly reach people experiencing cardiac arrest.
Lower consumption of beef, dairy, chicken, pork, and eggs accounted for more than 75% of the observed diet-related carbon dioxide savings during the study period.
UW–Madison, industry partners run quantum algorithm on neutral atom quantum computer for the first time
The achievement suggests quantum computers that outcompete traditional ones are on the horizon, with potential uses in logistics, drug discovery and computational modeling.
The high-resolution maps can help conservation managers focus their efforts where they are most likely to help birds — in individual counties or forests, rather than across whole states or regions.
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.
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.
