13 Dec Science stories that stood out on campus in 2023
This year, the University of Wisconsin–Madison achieved something it never has before: The university exceeded $1.5 billion in research expenditures. This information, compiled annually by the National Science Foundation, is important, though it’s just one measure of research activity on campuses across United States.
Here at University Communications, we also measure our research activity in the joy we experience writing a story about efforts by UW–Madison scientists to confront deadly antibiotic resistance neighborhood-by-neighborhood in Wisconsin, reading stories about our researchers’ queries to uncover the mysteries of our universe and creating videos about the hands-on experiences our veterinary students get while caring for wildlife across the state.
What follows are some of the stories that stood out to us most this year. We hope you enjoy exploring them as much as we did.
