In new research, scientists in the UW–Madison School of Pharmacy reveal the genetic history of this beetle-bacteria partnership. This kind of genetic detective work can help researchers decide where and how to look for new drugs.
New research by University of Wisconsin–Madison scientists reveals how a cellular filament helps neural stem cells clear damaged and clumped proteins, an important step in eventually producing new neurons.
The edited cells are a step toward studying the degenerative neurological disorder in a primate model, which has proven elusive.
New research on dunes in China describes how even neighboring dunes can long remain in different and seemingly conflicting states — confounding the assessment of stabilization efforts and masking the effects of climate change.
The award honors members of Congress whose actions and votes consistently reflect their commitment to fundamental science through funding investment for federal research agencies.
To grow layers of single-crystal oxides for electronic components requires neighboring layers to interlock like Lego blocks. A new method throws out that limitation, producing new capabilities for data storage, sensing, energy technologies, biomedical devices and many other applications.
A new study found that warming below the surface of the planet’s oceans is a significant contributor to ice sheet melt, particularly in the Antarctic, where a large portion of the ice sheet exists under the water.
As students, staff and faculty sift and winnow they produce a continual stream of visual documentation of their discoveries. The 10th annual Cooll Science Image Contest is soliciting the best visuals from members of the UW–Madison community.
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.
