‘Curiosity unleashed’: Wisconsin Science Festival continues for 10th year, offering more than 100 virtual events
The Wisconsin Science Festival will be run virtually this year, offering over 100 events to attendees.
Nutrition is a strange topic. While focus on what we put on our plates has never been greater, widespread misinformation makes dietary decisions for the conscious consumer quite difficult. Carbs are the cause of obesity. Well, maybe. Definitely avoid fats, but not those ones. It may seem that nutrition is more about opinion than science.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Veterinary Medicine has conducted research that provided new insights into creating an alternative and more widely inclusive seasonal influenza vaccine.
Even though UW-Madison’s in-person instruction will be suspended from Sept. 10-25, students will be allowed to report to their jobs in research labs under strict guidelines, Steven Ackerman, Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, said in a press release Thursday.
In March, Martin Shafer, a scientist at the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH) and UW-Madison College of Engineering, noticed a trend in COVID-19 testing techniques.
How do COVID-19 tests work? This coronavirus question is longer and more complicated than one might imagine. Choosing the correct test to use for a given population is an important question to look at first.
In April 2017, a quiet war was being waged over Warner Park’s resident beavers.
Engineering can become bogged down by calculations, drawings and theories behind complicated methods and technology. Students pursuing a degree in Engineering are taught how to solve problems and predict things like how much strain certain materials can endure, but some say there is not enough of actually “doing” in real-time — not enough of applying the theory into something that is actionable.
Kombucha is a type of fermented tea applauded for its probiotic health benefits. This beverage finds itself in the same realm as kimchi and yogurt, which is to say that these are all products of the fermentation mechanism. Live cultures of bacteria are responsible for generating kombucha, meaning that upon ingestion of such a drink, you’re going to experience a repopulation of your gut microbiota. This signifies the introduction of a whole new cast of bacteria dedicated to promoting digestion and detox. I like to think of these guys as friendly little micro-fauna.
It’s amazing to consider doing something as simple as focusing on your breath can improve your wellbeing and cognition — it seems like it would be intuitive, yet it is often overlooked.
A world where we can predict what traits and diseases that a baby will be born with is nearly upon us. With the expanding availability of genetic data, researchers in both universities and industry are trying to figure out the complicated relationship between our DNA and human health. For traits and diseases that reflect the interaction between many genetic and oftentimes environmental risk factors, these sorts of predictions are more difficult to make.
Atomic clocks, the most precise instruments known to man, are about to open a new door into our understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe.
Dr. Andrea Dutton, a research scientist at UW-Madison, received the “Genius Grant” to continue her research on constructing sea levels from 125,000 years ago. The motivation behind her research is to showcase the effects of rising sea levels on communities and educate the public on environmental changes as a result of global warming.
The grey wolf morphed into the first members of the Wolf Clan, one that is still a large part of the Ho-Chunk nation in Wisconsin — at least that is what their mythical origin story narrates.
More women than ever are participating in science, technology, engineering and math research at UW-Madison.
Magic mushrooms, most popularly characterized as a drug that causes users to tune out, are being found to have the ability to help people tune in to their own psyches and overcome barriers.
American Family Insurance announced Friday a $20 million investment into data science initiatives at UW-Madison, extending the company’s partnership with the university.
