Stem Cells @20 at UW-Madison

In 1998, UW–Madison developmental biologist James Thomson introduced the world to the first laboratory-derived human embryonic stem cells. His lab’s accomplishment underpins the new field of regenerative medicine, and the all-purpose cells are used worldwide to test drugs, develop treatments for diseases and further our understanding of basic human biology. Twenty years later, UW–Madison remains at the forefront, an internationally recognized leader in stem cell research.

  • Everyday Remarkable: Behind the Scenes with Scientist Jianhua Zhang, PhD

    Jianhua Zhang, PhD, senior scientist, Cardiovascular Medicine, first learned about Marie Curie’s story and discoveries while studying chemistry in middle school. Years later, Dr. Zhang’s work is still guided by a quote from Curie: “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” “That's my whole motivation, passion and interest in doing research, particularly now in the era of stem cell research,” said Dr. Zhang.
