For the first time, researchers have assembled a high-quality reference genome for the Nile rat, a promising model organism for diabetes research.
Former Morgridge Postdoctoral Fellow Finn Kuusisto was awarded for his work developing information technology to improve virtual reality applications that could one day be applied to biomedical devices.
After years of building tools for bioinformatics research, Morgridge Postdoctoral Fellow Matt Bernstein takes his skills to industrial cancer research.
For researchers looking to extract useful and relevant data from PubMed — a public database of more than 30 million biomedical research papers — Morgridge scientists have developed a simple and enticing shortcut, called KinderMiner.
Morgridge Postdoctoral Fellow Matthew Bernstein developed a web tool to explore public RNAseq datasets to facilitate analysis for cancer researchers.
Congratulations to our 2021 graduating students and research staff moving on into their next chapters. A few of them shared their experiences at Morgridge and their plans for the future.
In the center of the COVID-19 pandemic, many hospitals are racing to maintain quality care for patients with severe disease while facing a shortage of resources and limited understanding of the novel coronavirus.
With about 100 lines of code, a Morgridge Institute for Research team has unleashed a fast, simple and predictive text-mining tool that may turbo-charge big biomedical pursuits such as drug repurposing and stem cell treatments.
In the amphibian world, the axolotl is the replacement-parts king. This endangered Mexican salamander serves as its own NAPA store for lost body parts, able to fully regenerate limbs, tail, heart, spine and eyes — making it a model of curiosity for regenerative biologists.
From a philanthropic standpoint, extraordinary patience is required of individuals who believe strongly enough in the possible outcomes to provide ongoing support. Mildred “Babe” and Marv Conney are among those whose faith in the potential miracles of science has remained unshaken for nearly 30 years.
