Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...e studies from animal to humans," says Zhang. The next step, Li says, will be to test if the newly generated neurons can communicate with other cells when transplanted into a living animal. The team will first test the neurons in chicken embryos. While the new results are promising and provide access to...

W.M. Keck Foundation funds study of friendly microbes

... interdisciplinary enterprise strategically placed next to the Genome Sequencing Center. It is a major facet of the University's BioMed 21 initiative, which aims to translate genomic science into patient care. The CGS plays a catalytic role in helping to devise new ways to translate the genetic data obtai...
