UWM professor Anne Basting was recognized for her work with dementia patients, particularly for her creation of TimeSlips, which harnesses the power of storytelling to reframe the aging process.
Vampires, werewolves and monsters of all kinds are starring in academic research presentations at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, just in time for Halloween. Undergraduate students from two programs are sharing their research at a “Monster Conference” on Friday, Oct. 27, from 1 to 3 p.m. in Room 196 of the Honors College, 3363 N. Maryland […]
UW-Milwaukee alum Sumit Agarwal is a professor of economics and finance at Georgetown University. Being in the heart of American policy is perfect for his research and his passion — a passion that bloomed at UWM.
Proteins are the workhorses of genetic instruction, carrying out every function needed for life. UWM biophysicist Ionel Popa is untangling the mysteries of how proteins work, which could provide valuable insight into disease.
UWM physicists played important roles in the first-ever observation of the explosive collision of neutron stars. The explosion created gravitational waves, but for the first time astronomers observed light from the same source.
The three-year grant, in partnership with the Milwaukee Public Schools, is from the U.S. Department of Education’s Supporting Effective Educator Development program.
UWM biologist Filipe Alberto recently was awarded $2.8 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to create and maintain a kind of “seed stock” for breeding kelp with genetic traits best suited for mass production for bioenergy.
A group of UWM physicists has done collaborative research with one of the newly named Nobel laureates in chemistry, Columbia University’s Joachim Frank. Frank, along with Jacques Dubochet and Richard Henderson, won the prize for their development of cryo-electron microscopy, a method of imaging that renders detailed 3-D pictures of the smallest units of life, […]
Students in UWM’s App Brewery worked with doctors at the Medical College of Wisconsin to develop an app that helps guide doctors during the delicate process of brain surgery.
Gravity-wave astronomy is giving us a dramatically new way to look at our universe – which is why LIGO – the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory – was awarded this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics. Learn more about LIGO’s discovery and its scientific impact at Patrick Brady’s talk “When Black Holes Collide: Gravitational Waves and the […]
