Madison Researchers Increase Efficiency in Discovering Useful Fungal Molecules

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Aug 07, 2017

Fungi can be found throughout nature, from moldy food forgotten in the fridge to mushrooms growing in the forest. Scientists know that these diverse plethora of fungi contain useful molecules that can be used in creating new drugs, however extracting complex molecules from fungi is not an easy task and in the past has been a slow process.

Research at U Wisc-Madison May Make Botox Treatments Safer

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Tue, Aug 23, 2016

Over 6 million cosmetic surgery procedures are done each year using Botox, a form of the botulinum toxin. However, besides reducing wrinkles, botulinum toxins are used to treat over 20 medical conditions. These include severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms, chronic migraines, excessive sweating, leaky or over active bladders, facial spasms, and Cerebral Palsy. Botulinum toxins are also quite deadly. In fact, one gram--the equivalent to ¼ teaspoon of sugar--could kill over a million people.

Madison Lab Detects Alzheimer's Early

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 28, 2013

When it comes to identifying the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, every minute counts. Often it’s not even possible to determine whether a person is afflicted with it until it’s too late: that is, once symptoms start to show. A promising study at the University of Wisconsin, Madison suggests that there exists a way to diagnose Alzheimer’s before the onset of symptoms, not after.

Research Grant Awarded for Cheese Research at Wisconsin

Posted by Sam Asher on Tue, Oct 02, 2012

Wisconsin is universally known for its abundance of milk and cheese products, which establish its reputation as the “Dairy State.” Therefore, it stands to reason that the University of Wisconsin at Madison would have a fantastic Center for Dairy Research (CDR) at the forefront of cheese research. According to the CDR Homepage, this includes studying the functional and physical properties of cheese, create new flavors and varieties of cheeses, and investigate technologies for cheese production, safety, and quality.

Medical Research Building at UW-Madison In a Three-Part Construction

Posted by Katheryn Rein on Fri, Jul 13, 2012

Medical research building construction is underway at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with high hopes for top level research once the three stages of this project have all been completed. The goal for this project, which together will be called the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR), "is to create a new kind of, almost revolutionary, model for how we do medical research," said Dr. Robert Golden, dean of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
