UW-Madison is a member of the One Health initiative which is dedicated to improving the lives of all species—human and animal. We are also one of the few universities in the country which host the School of Medicine and the School of Veterinary Medicine in close proximity within the same campus enabling us to foster collaborations with ease. Our research complements the One Health goals by helping ameliorate myelin diseases which are common in both veterinary and human medicine. 

Please donate to UW Foundation’s Remyelination Research Fund to support myelin research and training in the Samanta lab for enhancing animal and human health.

In true Wisconsin spirit, we extend our Grate-full THANKS for funding our research to:

Congratulations Sai!

Sai Krishna Bhamidipati’s poem was selected by the Madison Poet Laureate, Angie Trudell Vasquez, in the annual Madison Metro bus lines poetry contest. The theme for this year’s contest was “How riding the bus is good for us and the planet.”

Sai’s poem:

Student or traveler, younger or older; 

all cozying up, standing shoulder to shoulder. 

This is a microcosm, and you’re welcome for sure. 

Because no matter how full, there’s always place for one more.
