Beginning with just five cell lines derived from surplus embryos donated by patients who had finished undergoing fertility treatments, human stem cell science has mushroomed from just a few isolated labs to a burgeoning global industry and launched the new field of regenerative medicine.
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.
A UW–Madison researcher has succeeded in creating an array of colorful thin diamond films, which will help explore light-powered chemical reactions catalyzed by diamond.
An international team of researchers has shown in mice that a healthy gut microbiome is important for recovery after a heart attack.
In Wisconsin, key to growing and empowering the community of stem cell researchers is the UW–Madison Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center.
New UW–Madison research makes it clear that the constant threat of crop parasites repeatedly pushed evolution in ants in strikingly similar directions, creating structures that helped the ants reinforce their partnership with bacteria.
Researchers show that gene loss — not the evolution of new genes — helped drive the fly amanita mushroom into its symbiotic relationship with plants.
