A new system developed by scientists at the Morgridge Institute for Research and the University of Wisconsin-Madison may provide a faster, cheaper and more biologically relevant way to screen drugs and chemicals that could harm the developing brain.
A daylong special event in the Discovery Building, located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, on Saturday, October 10, will explore health, happiness and well-being across the lifespan. The Morgridge Institute for Research and Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation are teaming with UW-Madison to host the free event, which will feature entertaining talks and hands-on activities […]
MADISON — A robot zoo, carbonated fruit, and virtual reality simulations are just a handful of experiences to be had at the 2015 Wisconsin Science Festival, held this year from Oct. 22-25. Now in its fifth year, the festival continues to grow with more than 30 communities hosting activities statewide—from Ashland to Madison to the […]
Pilar Ossorio, the Morgridge Institute for Research bioethicist in residence, will serve on an international committee convened by the National Academies of Science (NAS) to address the ethically challenging frontiers of human gene editing technology. “The idea is to help both governments and scientists around the world develop norms, and for funding agencies to develop […]
The announcement today of $250 million being raised for the University of Wisconsin-Madison through the John and Tashia Morgridge Match program is truly inspirational. At a pivotal time for the university, this effort supports a critical mass of new endowed professorships that will help attract and retain the very best talent to Wisconsin. Thanks to […]
The Morgridge Institute Metabolism Initiative is pleased to announce the Metabolism Colloquium, an ongoing series open to all UW-Madison faculty, staff, students and invited guests. Click here to register today! The colloquium will feature local and invited lecturers and bring together metabolism researchers to share ideas, expertise and resources. The meetings will take place on […]
Dave Pagliarini, a University of Wisconsin-Madison associate professor whose departmental home put metabolism research on the map worldwide, will help define the future of Wisconsin metabolism science as a lead investigator at the Morgridge Institute for Research. Pagliarini joins Morgridge from the UW-Madison Department of Biochemistry, which is home to some of the foundations of […]
The genes that turn on and off in precisely timed patterns, known as oscillatory genes, play an essential role in development functions like cell division, circadian rhythms and limb formation. But without a time-lapse view of genetic expression, these genes have gone largely undiscovered. An algorithm developed by scientists at the Morgridge Institute for Research […]
It’s widely believed that the Moon features networks of caves created when violent lava flows tore under the surface from ancient volcanoes. A unique imaging technology from the Morgridge Institute for Research is providing NASA with an interesting and relatively inexpensive way to explore these out-of-sight features.
