MCW researchers discover ancient cellular mutation leading to multi-celled organisms

Feb. 8 - Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) researchers Brian Volkman, PhD, professor of biochemistry, and Dustin Whitney, PhD, postdoctoral fellow, recently co-authored a study suggesting the evolution of an ancient cellular mutation 600 million years ago allowed single cells to evolve to multi-celled organisms.


Black History Month 2016

Feb. 1 - In honor of Black History Month, the Medical College of Wisconsin has created a series of video vignettes and stories that will be posted on InfoScope during the month of February. The vignettes highlight some of our African American and Black faculty and staff and the contributions they have made. The stories highlight MCW programs that improve the health of underserved populations (including African American and Black), offer these populations improved access to health care and education, and reduce health disparities. All of the vignettes and stories will be added to MCW’s Honoring Diversity Web page as they are published. This story highlights a few of the programs within our research and patient care missions.
