  • An exciting discovery from an incorrect hypothesis

    A hypothesis can be a scientists' best-educated guess about how an experiment might turn out or why they got specific results. Sometimes, they're not far off from the truth. Other times, they're wrong. Being wrong isn't always a bad thing. Often, it means that the researchers get to discover something new and exciting. This exact scenario happened when the Burstyn and Buller lab decided to work together on a project.

  • Prof. Clark Landis becomes UW-Madison Department of Chemistry chair

    Clark Landis, who has been with the UW-Madison Department of Chemistry for 30 years, will take over as department chair on July 1, 2021, to begin a three-year term. His goals as department chair are to attract outstanding faculty and students, improve departmental infrastructure for research and education, and to complete our ongoing Departmental reorganization. These goals support the department in its mission to conduct world-class, groundbreaking research in the chemical sciences while offering the highest quality of education to undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates.

  • Research Forward funds project to discover new RNA therapies

    Research Forward, formerly known as the UW2020: WARF Discovery Initiative, will fund 11 projects across campus for up to two years. The new initiative is supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF). One project funded, …

  • NSF award to establish network for advanced NMR across three institutions

    The University of Wisconsin–Madison will join a first-of-its-kind collaborative network for nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which researchers use to probe large biological molecules like proteins and RNA. Today, the National Science Foundation announced a $40 million award to establish the Network for Advanced NMR (NAN) linking three institutions: UConn School of Medicine, the University of Georgia and UW–Madison’s National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison.

  • Save the date: UW–Madison sets weekend to celebrate 2020 graduates

    The University of Wisconsin–Madison will welcome graduates of spring, summer and winter 2020 back to Madison Sept. 17-19 for a celebration of their achievements.

  • In-person classes continue — with safeguards

    With the COVID-19 global pandemic now in its second year, the nature of classroom experiences at UW–Madison continues to evolve. In the spring semester, most classes were virtual in deference to the COVID-19 pandemic. But some classes with under 50 students continued in person, including many labs requiring hands-on learning. Some classes had a hybrid model with both virtual and in-person students.

  • New chemistry makes ‘magic’ drug improvements easier

    In the last decade, scientists discovered a quirk of drug chemistry: If you add on a simple one-carbon building block to a drug, it can make the drug more potent, less toxic, or more stable.
