Last spring, UW-Eau Claire alumna Dr. Katie Kindt, a 2000 biochemistry/molecular biology graduate, was recognized by then-President Barack Obama for her outstanding leadership in science. During a White House celebration, the president presented Kindt with a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor given by the U.S. government to science and engineering professionals early in their research careers.
Thanks to a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation under the Research Experiences for Undergraduates program, eight students are getting the chance this summer to work on research projects in the areas of biophysical/biochemistry, physical chemistry, materials science and biology at UW-Eau Claire.
What do Blugolds get from working with professors on meaningful research? A dream job, says one recent UW-Eau Claire graduate.
Two senior biology majors have pursued extraordinary opportunities doing national and international undergraduate research through the biology department.
Dr. Derek Gingerich and senior microbiology major Kevin Mayer continue a National Science Foundation-supported research project on plant light response. Their findings could help guide future crop breeding and development.
The Beaver Creek Reserve and Blugold biology majors are once again proving to be a perfect match. Allison Ban-Herr is a member of this dream team, which is taking on invasive plant species found in north-central Wisconsin.
Biology students immerse themselves in the rugged beauty of southern Utah’s canyon country and do their part in efforts to protect the future of the region’s Escalante River.
Many student-faculty research projects are published. Read about that research here!
Dr. Joseph Rohrer, professor of biology at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, is a co-author of a first-of-its-kind field guide to help non-scientists recognize common mosses.
Ongoing biology research from 2013 examines the prevalence of deer ticks that carry Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria, the causative bacterial agent and insect vector of Lyme disease.
Dr. Lloyd Turtinen and students researchers investigate the presence of Borrelia burgdorferi in deer ticks.
Local professors and students are studying how the velocity of flowing water in the Wisconsin River affects how many macroinvertebrates made submerged wood structures their home.
Doing research is great, but it's infinitely richer and more impactful when you get immersed in another culture at the same time. Biodiversity research in Cambodia is one example.
An ecology and environmental biology major’s childhood dreams come true thanks to a research project that took her to a remote part of Cambodia to conduct biodiversity studies in a community forest managed by Buddhist monks.
What makes lichen and trees grow in certain island areas in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area? Local researchers examined 30 such islands in a one-week study of the area in the fall of 2009.
Faculty and student researchers at UWEC found that Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and E. coli both grew perfectly well in petri dishes sprayed with IonatorEXP™activated water.
Researchers studied the leaf lifespan of 10 woodland species to find out if plants with long leaf lifespans had an economic advantage.
Here's a question: Can plants, when bombarded with higher levels of CO2 than normal, increase their rate of photosynthesis long term to catch up?
