Highlights from Milwaukee men's basketball's 77-72 win over Wisconsin Dec. 12, 1993. Craig Greene led the Panthers with 23 points and nine rebounds as they led by as many as 13 in the first half. Marc Mitchell added 16 points and seven assists as UWM had four players reach double-figures in scoring. (Added April 8, 2013)
A research team led by UW-Milwaukee physicists has proven a method that makes it possible to find the atomic structure of proteins by producing "snapshots" of them over micro-second time intervals with unprecedented resolution.
This has opened the door to discovering what physics professor Marius Schmidt calls “some of the grand challenges of biology.” Proteins are behind almost everything that happens in a living organism, and they play a pivotal role not only in human health, but also in issues as diverse as food, drug discovery and energy.
When it’s “Wheelchair Day” at UWM, trust us, you’ll know it. Dozens of students cruise around campus, and let’s just say… (Honk! Honk! Excuse me!) … becoming skilled behind the wheel(chair) takes some practice. But, that’s exactly the point of the officially titled Powered Mobility Lab.
Once or twice a year, Home Care Medical or National Seating and Mobility, local rehabilitation equipment vendors, pull up to the College of Health Sciences with three vans full of wheelchairs – some powered solely by the puff of your breath or the tilt of your head.
In this video, we’ll roll around UWM with students in the college’s Assistive Technology and Accessible Design program as the future occupational therapists take a closer look at campus from a different vantage point.

UWM PhD graduate John Kestell almost didn't enter the ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Award, thinking he wouldn't win. Two weeks later, he found out he had won the state-wide award and would be competing nationally against 60 other candidates in Washington D.C.
With 400-plus acres of prairie, forest and wetland teeming with exploration and restoration, the UWM Field Station is the perfect natural classroom. And, it just might be the most beautiful parcel of UWM campus anywhere. From sunrise to starlight, take a look at an (anything-but) typical day at the UWM Field Station.
On your mark, get set, PROWL!
