From the webmaster: redesign

The LEAD site is currently being redesigned. The site is fully linked, only the design and layout will be changing (the front page being the model layout). So check back often for updates.

Latest Headlines

Check out our Headlines and Presentations page. LEAD's most recent media exposure (09.17.05, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel): "A case of raging hormones? UW scientist's theory on diseases of aging being put to test."

From the webmaster: cache files

Please remember to empty the cache file of your browser if you are having problems viewing the graphics of this site properly. Graphics (especially the main menu) are from time to time replaced with newer versions, and since your browser is relying on stored images (cache file) to increase download speed, that would be the reason for distorted images. Cache files are safe to completely empty manually. Or, you can change the setting in your browser preferences to 'update pages always'.
