Crowds young and old were drawn to the annual Wisconsin Science Festival at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery (WID) building this weekend. Attendees satisfied their curiosities of the science world with topics ranging from climate change to stem cells. Booths within WID allowed for hands-on experiences for patrons.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison has long been established as a Midwestern mecca of research and creative work, with a myriad of research centers and offices in a multitude of fields.
A scientific paper detailing detection methods of dark matter and words like electrons, neutrinos and muons thrown about—these are things expected in a physics lecture or in the office of a physics professor at UW-Madison, but perhaps not at all expected in a local Madison art gallery.
The University of Wisconsin–Madison announced a new partnership establishing the Forward BIO Initiative on Thursday, thanks to a $750,000 grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. “The Forward BIO Initiative will have everything it takes to amplify the impact of Wisconsin’s innovations in biomanufacturing,” said William Murphy, a professor of biomedical engineering and orthopedics at UW–Madison. Biomanufacturing is defined as the use of advanced biotechnology manufacturing to produce biomaterial for medicines, food, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.
