The yearly contest from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education funds select research projects in biological sciences, physical sciences, social sciences and the arts and humanities.
A UW team's work will inform government and community groups’ efforts to address vaccine access and hesitancy, with the ultimate goal of increasing immunization rates.
The results could help improve diagnostic techniques applicable to both companion animals and people, addressing “a big open question in veterinary medicine.”
Native species declined while the average number of different crops grown in these states was cut in half and as modern agriculture began to focus on intensive production of corn and soybeans
The findings, the researchers say, suggest that previous SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccines that are based on earlier strains of the virus still provide protection against infection with gamma.
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.
The research team — which includes geographers, mathematicians, an epidemiologist and communications experts — used the model to examine decisions to ease restrictions as the pandemic seemed to wane in mid-2020.
UW researchers have found evidence that errors are correlated across an entire superconducting quantum computing chip — highlighting a problem to address in the quest for fault-tolerant quantum computers.
The multi-site trial at UW–Madison is in its first phase and is testing a personalized topical medication in the form of a gel as a way to treat vascular anomalies.
A study led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the UW–Madison’s prevention efforts, including a two-week quarantine of two residence halls, likely helped contain the outbreak.
The research suggests that humanity’s dominant influence on ecosystems that is so visible today has its origin in the earliest civilizations and the rise of agriculture, deforestation and other ways our species has influenced the landscape.
