The finding has important implications for the way we approach invasive species control and management, researchers say.
The project, funded by a five-year, $7.7 million award from the National Institutes of Health National Eye Institute, will rely on an approach aimed at correcting nonsense mutations in DNA.
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.
“The goal of this initiative is to spark new collaborations with industry, stimulate innovative thinking among students, and promote translation of fundamental research," says Steve Ackerman, vice chancellor for research and graduate education.
The project will not only add critical perspectives and missing facts to the historical record, but will also help combat ongoing racism and bias.
The study may help structural engineers to understand environmental stressors of polymer composite materials and how to design them to resist microbial degradation.
Launched in 2016, the Global Land Analysis and Discovery system provides frequent, high-resolution alerts when it detects a drop in forest cover.
A prototype “contactless” thermometer was created by borrowing the sensor from a commercially available thermometer and adding a microcontroller and distance sensor controlled by open-source code.
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education received 110 applications for the Pandemic-Affected Research Continuation Initiative and will support 70, representing each of the four research divisions.
A team of researchers led by University of Wisconsin–Madison mechanical engineer Christian Franck is working on better ways to detect concussions and better protective equipment to prevent them.
