On the debut episode of Curious Campus, UWM’s new podcast about science, discovery and culture, we look at Mars exploration with guests Jean Creighton and Darian Dixon.
An international team of astronomers that includes one from UWM has discovered unusual radio signals that fit no currently understood variable radio source and could suggest a new class of stellar object.
Backed by a $244,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Policies for Action program, the research team is using Milwaukee as a case study to identify the steps that are most likely to lead from resolution to policy changes, while also determining the effects of resolutions across the country.
UWM faculty and staff members lead a team awarded a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to implement a pilot “microtransit” project that they hope makes it easier for residents from segregated city neighborhoods to reach suburban areas with more jobs.
UWM researchers trying to untangle the mystery of the eastern gray tree frog mating rituals found it hard to study in the pond. So they built their own.
They are inventors, innovators and mentors. The work by more than 4,600 UWM graduate students in 104 graduate degree programs drives the academic discovery in labs all across the campus.
Mikayla Walker is one of the student researchers studying fossils deposited along the Lake Michigan lakeshore from some 40,000 years ago, when the area was far different, made up of marshes and bogs.
The honor recognizes Ava Udvadia’s research into the genetics that allow healing of nerve damage, along with her efforts to encourage undergraduates to participate in that work.
Emma Kraco was always interested in biological sciences in elementary and high school. “I loved looking for bugs, looking at tiny things up close. It just made sense to get interested in water, especially fresh water. It’s absolutely teeming with life all the time.”
The 2021 edition of UWM Research magazine has launched online, detailing the work of dozens of faculty members, students and staff.
