Congratulations to Darryl Wesener from the Kiessling Lab for his top research proposal at the recent WARF Discovery Challenge.

The Discovery Challenge, part of the WARF Student Ambassador Program, is a two-part research competition for UW–Madison graduate students and postdoctoral researchers from all departments and fields of study. It aims to promote cross-disciplinary research and provides a forum for students to share research results, exchange ideas, improve their communication skills and seek new collaborators. It consists of a research symposium on April 9, followed by a...

The David Green Lecture in Enzyme Chemistry on Wednesday April 8 by Kevan Shokat (UC-San Francisco) included a clip from a 16mm film made by David Rogers at Vanderbuilt University.

Amazing to hear that microscopy from the 1950's inspires research in 2015.

Top beer from student competition to be sold at Terrace this spring!

The beer—a red lager that will be called “Inaugural Red”—was selected this past Thursday during a competition held in food science professor Jim Steele’s fermented foods and beverages laboratory class. Six student teams participated in the contest, each presenting a red lager beer of their design to an expert panel of judges.
