An experiment will test the back-to-the-future principle that cattle will find safety by returning to their roots as herd animals, says graduate student Naomi Louchouarn, who began the experiment last spring.
“If we can understand the key factors causing cell migration, then we could perhaps develop new treatments to speed up wound healing,” says Jacob Notbohm, an assistant professor of engineering physics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
UW–Madison’s inaugural MS in Physics – Quantum Computing, which addresses a workforce need as the first program of its kind in the U.S., will prime students to enter this rapidly growing field.
“It is critical to include parents of infants and very young children in this research because preventing stress-related difficulties in children is a more effective approach than intervening after problems develop.”
Children and teens with bipolar depression responded better to the drug if they had increased markers of inflammation in their blood, a new UW–Madison study shows.
The game was designed for middle schoolers and requires them to count their breaths by tapping a touch screen to advance through relaxing landscapes such as ancient Greek ruins and outer space.
The work may represent preliminary progress toward deciphering just how enzymes, honed by evolution, so efficiently produce natural compounds.
New UW–Madison research shows how bacteria can degrade solid bedrock, jump-starting a long process of alteration that creates the mineral portion of soil.
Adults with lower genetic risk for ADHD also reported, on average, higher IQs and educational attainments, shorter or no criminal records, lower body mass index (BMI), and lower rates of depression than adults with middle-to-high genetic risk for ADHD.
Fifteen healthy young men will receive two doses of the experimental vaccine. If the first group tolerates it, an additional group of up to 20 volunteers will receive a higher dose of the vaccine.
The predictive tool is a boon for researchers studying how cells control the activity of genes, helping explain how cells achieve their key functions and how they go haywire, as happens in diseases such as cancer.
The researchers were able to demonstrate that delirium is associated with injury to nervous tissue in the brain that could lead to loss of cognitive ability.
Kevin Eliceiri says he has always believed that science is best done by building on the work of others and openly sharing what you have done.
