The UWM team sent plasmids up on a rocket to discover how cosmic radiation affects DNA. The results were surprising.
A proposal from Alison Donnelly, associate professor of geography at UWM, was chosen from among hundreds submitted. Observations in Downer Woods will help calibrate observations by satellites, improving further research on the climate.
UWM’s David Kaplan is part of a research team that has shown that yet another prediction by Albert Einstein 100 years ago holds up, even in some extreme conditions in deep space.
Two Nicolet High School students have been recognized for their work alongside Michael Carvan, professor in UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences.
An international team of researchers, including Paul Auer at UW-Milwaukee, has recently identified 48 genes associated with a woman’s predisposition to breast cancer – 34 that were implicated in previous research and 14 new genes.
Mordecai Lee is one of 15 featured authors who will be presenting and signing books at the 2018 Roosevelt Reading Festival at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York.

In fact, the lung disease, which spreads through coughs or sneezes, now kills more people worldwide than any other infectious agent, according to the World Health Organization. But in order to design drugs that foil resistance, scientists first have […]
What happens to the human retina at the cellular level when it’s exposed to the hyperglycemic conditions of diabetes? No known imaging technique has been able to show such biochemical changes – until now.
Three researchers at UWM have a nearly half-million-dollar grant from the National Science Foundation to dive deeper into exactly how member diversity fosters innovation within engineering teams.
