Amy Wray doesn’t expect everyone to love bats like she does, but the doctoral candidate in wildlife ecology hopes to help people understand how essential they are to our ecosystem. And what better time than Halloween?
A new study reports that PBO interferes with the critical signaling pathway dubbed by scientists as sonic hedgehog, resulting in stunted forebrain development and signature facial abnormalities.
Scientists led by Morgridge Institute for Research investigator Phillip Newmark have isolated a potent kryptonite against the parasitic worms, which cause devastating health problems.
Scientists found the virus while searching for the cause of Wisconsin River Eagle Syndrome. The newly identified bald eagle hepacivirus may contribute to the fatal disease, which causes eagles to stumble and have seizures.
Millions of people with severe burns or diabetic skin ulcers could benefit from an experimental enhancement to a next-generation covering that is already healing difficult wounds.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison have packed a gene-editing payload into a customizable, synthetic nanocapsule.
As outbreaks on Pacific islands and in the Americas in recent years made Zika virus a pressing public health concern, the Zika virus’s close similarity to dengue presented the possibility that one infection may exacerbate the other.
A team of biomedical engineers and clinician-scientists borrowed molecules from the immune system of the parasitic sea lamprey to deliver anti-cancer drugs directly to brain tumors.
A new study lends support to the idea that inflammation may play a key role in the development of the degenerative neurological disorder.
Dogs started receiving a vaccine against cancer this week in a clinical trial at UW-Madison. If the vaccine works in dogs, it may not only provide a new strategy for addressing a critical canine health concern, it might also work in people.
