UW researchers at the Carbone Cancer Center have identified the cells that can cause graft-versus-host disease, the most common complication of bone marrow transplants.
UW researchers have found a way to move gene therapies through the blood-brain barrier, a crucial step for brain-wide CRISPR treatments of disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
UW researchers demonstrate just how much promise some well-equipped bacteria hold for improved inflammatory bowel disease treatments.
Cocaine disrupts the balance of microbes in the guts of mice, part of a cycle of waxing and waning neurochemicals that can enhance the drug’s effects in the brain. But the same chemicals may also be harnessed to prevent addiction, according to new research.
The cellular differences between these species may illuminate steps in their evolution and how those differences can be implicated in disorders, such as autism and intellectual disabilities, seen in humans.
New research demonstrates the potential for a family of viruses in African primates to jump the species barrier to humans.
Invasive jumping worms threaten soil health in Wisconsin, including in Dane County where the population has infested the University of Wisconsin–Madison Arboretum. Brad Herrick leads crews of volunteers to survey for the worms so that researchers can study their movements and possibly find ways to halt their spread.
The team used CRISPR gene editing technology to create in rat embryos the mutations that lead to HSP. This allowed them to study how the disease progresses from early development and monitor the progression of symptoms after birth.
The persistence of highly pathogenic avian influenza in wild and domestic birds through the summer months points to a likely rise in cases this fall, according to Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory Director Keith Poulsen.
A new study from Wan-Ju Li’s lab in the UW–Madison Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center advances research into reparative osteoarthritis therapies using stem cells derived from the ears of miniature pigs.
