MILWAUKEE _ Joachim Frank, who won the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing cryo-electron microscopy, will give a public lecture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Friday, March 9. His talk centers on the potential of that imaging method in viewing ultra-quick biological processes at the molecular level. Frank also will discuss new methods […]
MILWAUKEE _ The National Institutes of Health today released the first data from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) study, the largest long-term study of brain development and child health in the United States. The study’s aim: to identify optimal biological and environmental building blocks for raising successful and resilient young adults. The baseline data, […]
Electric cars are wonders of whiz-bang technology, but they have an Achilles heel – their lithium-ion batteries are less efficient in cold weather. Researchers at UWM have come up with a solution.
Who needs Punxsutawney Phil? A new forecasting tool created with models built by UWM climatologist Mark Schwartz just may put the spring-predicting groundhog, who may or may not cast his shadow on Feb. 2, out of work.
A water sensor developed by an entrepreneur and the manager UWM’s Water Technology Accelerator is a finalist in a NASA competition that seeks to spur creation of new technology. The sensors could have application in space as well as on Earth.
A super-sensor developed by a UWM researcher and a Milwaukee entrepreneur is a finalist in a NASA technology competition. Designed by David Rice of Rice Technology LLC and tested with UWM environmental engineer Marcia Silva, the sensor can quickly and inexpensively measure multiple contaminants in water, including viruses, which are so small they pass through […]
Representatives from Microsoft presented the first program of UWM’s Connected Systems Institute, demonstrating software designed to harness data from the “industrial internet of things,” or IIoT, to boost productivity of companies.
Chen, a distinguished professor of mechanical engineering at UWM, is among 3,300 researchers from 900 institutions who have produced a high number of papers that rank in the top 1 percent most-cited in a field over an 11-year period.
The mating behaviors of some bird species, such as the greater prairie chicken and the tree swallow, are not as monogamous as they seem at first. UWM scientist Peter Dunn is untangling the mysteries at the UWM Field Station.
