Discovering the Truth of Lazy Eye at UW

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Aug 27, 2015

Bioresearch can help the development of treatment for several eye diseases; for instance, the University of Illinois tackled macular degeneration and the University of Wisconsin developed solar contact lenses to treat the eye disease presbyopia. Now the University of Wisconsin, Madison is studying new solutions to the disease amblyopia, more commonly known as “lazy eye.”

Madison Study Suggests Vegetarianism Starves Breast Cancer Tumors

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jul 23, 2015

Breast cancer is a complex problem that researchers all over the nation have been attempting to solve with varying methods. We saw five University of Cincinnati researchers last year who all won grants for contributions to the field, and spotlighted an Ohio State University team who worked on reversing breast tumor growth only a few months ago. A new study from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, suggests that our diet may be an understudied factor when it comes to fighting breast cancer tumor development.

Madison Researchers Study Estrogen's Role in Cervical Cancer

Posted by Robert Larkin on Mon, Jun 15, 2015

Cervical cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths for women worldwide, with more than 500,000 new cases per year. In the United States, however, early screening and HPV vaccine have resulted in a decline in U.S. rates to approximately 12,000 cases annually.

University Research Park Company Creates New Method for Treating Burns

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, May 13, 2015

When people become severely burned, there are limited options available to repair the skin and tissue that have been affected. People must undergo painful and tedious surgery and skin transplants to repair the damaged skin and tissues. Stratatech Corp., a Madison, WI based company, has been focused on creating new treatment options for severe burns and recently developed new human skin tissue called StrataGraft that was used to heal severe burn wounds in 30 patients during a recent clinical trial.

Stem Cell Research Thrives at UW Madison's Waisman Center

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Nov 07, 2013

The hype in medical media over stem cells often overlooks the complexity and difficulty behind their production. In fact, there are only a few laboratories among businesses and universities with the capacity to pull it off. This is one of the things that make the Waisman Biomanufacturing Center at the University of Wisconsin, Madison particularly impressive.

UW Researchers Discover Link Between Zinc and Alzheimer's

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 03, 2013

Zinc is one of the many minerals that we know is necessary for a balanced diet, yet most of us hardly know why it’s important or if we’re getting enough. Now, though, research from the labs at University of Wisconsin, Madison suggests that zinc may be linked to diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

UW-Madison Bioengineer Develops Solar Contact Lenses

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 13, 2013

While solar power is one of the leading sources of renewable energy available to us, it’s easy to argue that we have a long way to go in terms of directly harnessing the sun’s rays. For instance, most solar devices in our daily lives must be hooked up to a battery or capacitor in order to store the energy they derive. A novel invention from the University of Wisconsin, Madison solves this issue by keeping solar energy readily available in the mechanism itself. But most impressive of all is that the mechanism itself is a pair of solar contact lenses.

Stem Cells Restore Memory at the University of Wisconsin

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Apr 25, 2013

For all the excitement there’s been over stem cells in biotechnology (including in our Science Market Update posts- for example  Mayo Clinic Spearheads Regenerative Medicine and California to Spend $32M on Stem Cell Research Biobank), one very exciting application for the technology that has been heretofore unannounced is stem cell transplants in the brain. Here to remedy this fact is the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where it was just recently discovered that stem cells can form nerve cells which can actually increase learning and memory capability.
