Dave Pagliarini, lead investigator of metabolism for the Morgridge Institute for Research and associate professor of biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is being recognized for major early-career achievement by The Protein Society.

From physics to fitness, athletes in science challenge minds and bodies

From Rosalind Franklin to Edwin Hubble, history has shown that athleticism and scientific prowess are not mutually exclusive traits.

Mateusz Manicki: Collaboration breeds scientific opportunity

In order to understand the biochemical underpinnings of disease, it is imperative to shrink down to the molecular level. It’s this mentality that steered Mateusz Manicki all the way from Poland’s Gdansk University to Madison, Wisconsin to study mitochondrial proteins. Manicki will be using mass spectrometry resources to better understand the functionality of cells contributing to a given disease.

Tech investment spurs Alzheimer’s research

The Laboratory of Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry (LBMS), launched in summer 2015, accelerates the university’s ability to apply this powerful technology to high-impact projects, says Joshua Coon, UW-Madison professor of chemistry and biomolecular chemistry and LBMS director.

Mitochondrial maps reveal new connections to poorly understood diseases

Mitochondria are the engines that drive cellular life, but these complex machines are vulnerable to a wide range of breakdowns, and hundreds of their component parts remain a functional mystery.
