Madison Chemists Research How the Ocean Assists with Cloud Formation

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Jul 13, 2015

Clouds are formed when tiny drops of water collect around a central particle (nuclei) like dust or microbial life, but not all particles are able to absorb the necessary water to form a cloud, leaving many holes in the knowledge of cloud formation.

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.

U.Wisconsin Researchers Develop New Material to Separate Oil from Water

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Jun 08, 2015

The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 spilled 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf, causing tremendous impacts to the ecosystem. The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in the Prince William Sound in 1989 also had a tremendous impact on the environment. Impacts of these spills can still be seen, and there is still oil that has not yet been cleaned up on land and in the water. (Image courtesy of Pete Markham via Wikimedia Commons)

Wisconsin Researcher Wins Grant for Antibody Spray

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 04, 2015

In an effort to avoid abusing antibiotics, more and more researchers have been looking for alternate ways to kill or otherwise inhibit pathogens. We have seen several excellent and creative examples here in the Science Market Update, for instance exploding bacteria from the inside or even just telling bacteria not to infect us. Now a research group at The University of Wisconsin, Madison have devised a clever way to vaccinate farm animals to protect them from common troubling diseases.

Wisconsin Researchers Fight the Common Cold

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Apr 16, 2015

A team of researchers at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison have discovered a way to loosen the foothold of Rhinovirus C (RV-C) in the human body. RV-C is among the most common viral infections in humans and is also the leading cause of the common cold. We haven’t been able to do much to change that so far, but the UW work presents a new understanding and method of attacking the virus.

$7.7 Million Awarded to Wisconsin Researchers for Sleep Disorder Study

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Apr 08, 2015

One common trait that all humans and animals share is the need for sleep. Even though sleep is a necessity for humans and animals to properly function, there are many disorders that interfere with sleep, such as insomnia and night terrors. Another disorder that certain animals experience is called "local sleep" where part of the brain sleeps while the animal is still awake. Two big questions researchers have are why this happens, and if it can also occur in humans. (Image courtesy of Wikimedia Commons).

UW Madison Receives $8.3 Million to Establish Urology Research Center

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Mar 27, 2015

The prostate can cause problems for many men as they age, and some of these problems do not yet have solid treatments that can help with the problems. With the help of a recent $8.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in late 2014, the University of Wisconsin, Madison will be able to establish a new Urology Research Center that will focus on studying the prostate and some common diseases associated with it.

Making the Most of Manure in Madison

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 26, 2015

In biotechnology, one man’s trash is very often another man’s treasure. We’ve seen prime examples of this with the chlorine-eating bacteria developed at the University of Minnesota and the anaerobic digester at MSU which produces renewable energy from the biowaste of the campus. Now a consortium spearheaded by the University of Wisconsin-Madison is working on turning the problem of dairy farm manure into solutions to other problems.

Madison Bioresearchers Receive $390K For Ablation Breakthrough

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Nov 20, 2014

Combining scientific disciplines to tackle a common problem can be very powerful. In broad terms, biology benefits greatly from the processing and computational prowess of computer science and the molecular studies of chemistry. At the University of Wisconsin, Madison, a cross-disciplinary team is breaking the standard notions of tumor ablations.
