The UWM team sent plasmids up on a rocket to discover how cosmic radiation affects DNA. The results were surprising.
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.
The LIGO observations of gravitational wave over the past two years were groundbreaking. Now, UWM astronomers plan to build off that work by employing a new tool to decode more mysteries of the sky.
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 research has the potential to fundamentally advance our understanding of biological processes inside cells. UWM physicists developed algorithms to reconstruct sequential images of viruses too small to photograph.
UWM physicists are working to help physicians by accurately pinpointing fetal conception.
UWM is leading an effort to turn 54 pulsars into a massive observational array.
New imaging equipment developed at UWM gives scientists previously impossible glimpses of life’s building blocks.
UWM physicists were crucial to the world-renowned discovery of Einstein’s predicted gravitational waves. One year later, here’s what else they hope to find.
