In Wisconsin’s lakes and forests, UW–Madison researchers contribute to managing the state’s natural resources for all to enjoy.
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.
Surprising results from a UW–Madison research study add a twist to climate change predictions for freshwater fish.
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.
Living closer to humans brings wild animals closer to each other, possibly closer than they’d like, according to new research from UW’s Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
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.
