Illuminating Connections

Illuminating Connections

The Illuminating Connections event is a celebration of WID’s hubs, which create connections across campus to lead to new collaborations, opportunities, and discovery. Learn how the hubs can serve you!

BEFORE AND AFTER THE EVENT, MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT DARWIN DAY ACTIVITIES FROM UW–MADISON’S CROW INSTITUTE, INCLUDING A WEDNESDAY NITE @ THE LAB LECTURE FROM DR. MARIA E. ORIVE: REPLICATING VIRUSES AND ADAPTING CLONES: MAKING SENSE OF BIOLOGY WITH MATHEMATICS.

The Illuminating Connections event will highlight WID’s established hubs plus two new hubs — the Bioengineering Hub and the Emerging Technologies Hub — through an interactive expo from 3:00 until 4:00 and from 5:15 until 6:30. Participating researchers and programs will be on hand to showcase their work through posters, interactive activities, and informal discussions accompanied by refreshments. At 4:00 pm, WID Director Jo Handelsman will introduce the hubs and describe how they engage with campus researchers and the community. Genetics Professor Ahna Skop will keynote the event, followed by brief research talks from data scientist and Assistant Professor of Plant Pathology Claudia Solís-Lemus and Professor of Mechanical Engineering Lih-Sheng (Tom) Turng.

The theme of illumination runs through the entire program, from the Hub Expo through the research talks. During the darkest season of the year, WID illuminates the connections being built across campus, the groundbreaking science happening at UW–Madison, and the future of interdisciplinary inquiry.
