UW-Milwaukee updated statement on social media post by UWM lecturer

Betsy Schoeller, a senior lecturer at UWM, made comments via her personal Facebook page that are beyond thoughtless. They are repugnant and terribly at odds with UWM’s values. UWM in no way condones Ms. Schoeller’s comments, and we understand and empathize with the outrage and concerns we are hearing. The murder of Army Specialist Vanessa […]

Researchers create a tool for accurate assessment of gestational age

Knowing the gestational age of a baby is key for optimal pregnancy management and in order to know whether birth is premature or not. This is important for pregnant women and their babies, as preterm birth is a major global health challenge and the leading cause of death in children under 5 years old. However, […]

LIGO-Virgo detectors find cosmic mystery object in ‘mass gap’

When the most massive stars die, they collapse under their own gravity and leave behind black holes; when stars that are a bit less massive die, they explode in a supernova and leave behind dense, dead remnants of stars called neutron stars. For decades, astronomers have been puzzled by a gap that lies between the […]

UWM researchers develop mathematical model to reveal brain’s neural activity

Groundbreaking research at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has implications for understanding and predicting the progression of degenerative disorders of the brain, including Alzheimer’s disease, and for lessening the impact of traumatic brain injuries. The research also suggests the possibility of creating a higher-resolution brain imaging technology to replace functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for improved […]
