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.
Congratulations to John and Tashia on this prestigious award! 7.30.15 |San Jose Mercury News | Sal Pizarro | Original publication The selection of Cisco Systems Chairman Emeritus John Morgridge and his wife, Tashia Morgridge, for this year’s James C. Morgan Global Humanitarian Award is a welcome return to Silicon Valley for The Tech Awards’ signature […]
A team led by Brandon Walker, a graduate student in the UW-Madison Department of Medical Physics and a researcher at the Morgridge Institute, designed a modular, multisource x-ray tube that has applications for both high-speed computed tomography (CT) and 3-D metal printing.
A Morgridge Institute for Research summer camp that has immersed hundreds of Wisconsin rural high school students in cutting-edge stem cell research is in the national spotlight, starting with a front-page news feature in The Wisconsin State Journal. The story, by WSJ reporter Cassidy McDonald, ran on the front page on Saturday, July 18, and […]
O’Reilly OSCON, Portland, OR — The Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP) has added three new services to its suite of assurance offerings, including support for software written in Ruby, support for Android software written in Java, and access to Parasoft’s Jtest and C/C++test static analysis tools. The new services are a big step in ongoing efforts […]
Now in its ninth year, the Rural Summer Science Camp brings teachers and high school students from rural Wisconsin communities to Madison to learn about advances in stem cell science and careers in research. A large emphasis is placed on hands-on, experiential learning. Campers aren’t just hearing about science– they’re doing science.
A gift to the Morgridge Institute for Research will help spur medical device innovations coming directly from clinicians — the people who know firsthand where the advances are needed.
Baby-boomer demographics offer a frightening look at the future toll of Alzheimer’s disease. Without a big advance in early diagnosis and treatment, experts forecast as many as 14 million new Alzheimer’s cases by 2050 occurring among the 78 million baby boomers, the first wave of whom just turned 65.
As a human health issue, most people think about metabolism in the context of calories in/calories out, energy consumption and body weight. But lately, scientists are finding far more sweeping health implications for this biological process.
