Revolutionary Tumor-Targeting Molecule Developed at UW-Madison

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 19, 2014

In many cases, one of the most troubling things about a tumor is its resilience. Tumors can be very hard to completely eradicate, often leaving behind some trace from which they can regrow. We saw an example of this in last week’s blog, where a bioresearcher from Cincinnati discovered a way to prevent breast cancer tumors from leaving behind stem cells. Now a research team from the University of Wisconsin, Madison presents a molecule that can detect and treat tumors of several more types of cancer.

Madison Bioscientists Design Deconstructable Trees

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, May 08, 2014

As we progress farther into the digital age, society maintains a surprising dependence on paper. In industry and academia, paper is still heavily relied on for reports, records, and correspondence. Twenty years ago, bioresearchers at the University of Madison, Wisconsin began developing ways to increase efficiency of paper production. Technology forecasters at the time might have predicted that such research would be irrelevant by 2014; however, the recent release of the team’s results is actually exciting and pertinent news.

UW-Madison Lab Develops Oil-Absorbing Aerogel

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Mar 06, 2014

Oil spills are unfortunately becoming an increasing reality in our world. Since the infamous Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which has yet to be fully cleaned up, the world has seen 65 more spills, 8 of which occurred in 2013 alone. As supported by the fact that the BP spill cleanup is now in its 10th year, there is a lack of inexpensive yet effective ways to handle such ecological disasters. From the labs of the University of Wisconsin, Madison comes a biotechnologically sound solution that also manages to be environmentally friendly: a “greener” aerogel.

Madison Lab Report Shows Meditation Changes Genetic Expression

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Dec 26, 2013

The holiday season can be a stressful one, making it an important time to remember how to relax. For some people, this involves meditation, the discipline of the mind with the goal of reducing stress or building internal energy. While it may seem like merely a placebo or “positive thinking” effect to skeptics, a growing body of evidence supports the tangible health benefits of meditation. Curious researchers at the University of Wisconsin, Madison recently decided to explore meditation from a biotechnological standpoint and analyze what effects it actually has on humans.

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.

Ant Gardens Hold Secret to Biofuels at UW-Madison

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jul 18, 2013

As the gardeners and farmers among us tend to their summer crops, a thriving community of gardeners is busy beneath our feet. As rushed and single-minded as ants seem to be, some of them are maintaining gardens of fungi at this very moment. Bioresearchers at the University of Wisconsin, Madison are taking note of these miniature horticulturalists and how their curious habits might aid humans in their search for sustainable energy sources.
