ACCELERATING THE PACE OF SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY THAT IMPACTS THE WORLD
In Wisconsin®, research institutions are working together with new and established bioscience enterprises to create solutions to global food, health and sustainability challenges. From ultraviolet radiation for enriching foods with vitamin D to pluripotent stem cells that make powerful research tools, our pioneering discoveries improve the lives of people around the world. All of this sets the stage for Wisconsin bioscience companies to make discoveries, develop technologies and generate global sales.
With some of the strongest international leadership and research capabilities in the world, Wisconsin has one of the nation’s most diverse and fastest growing bioscience sectors. The University of Wisconsin, one of the top research universities in the nation, conducts more than $1.2 billion per year in academic research and development—with 70% going to the bioscience sector.
In Wisconsin, business, academic and government efforts converge to turn biotech discoveries into scalable solutions. The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) has been patenting and commercializing groundbreaking research at the University of Wisconsin for more than 80 years, leading to the launch of bioscience startups that discover new technologies to enrich human health around the globe.
Wisconsin is an ideal destination for companies seeking research partners, joint ventures and transfer and production capabilities. Life science companies can benefit from the support of WEDC, the UW Office of Corporate Relations, BioForward and resources that provide state-of-the-art facilities, like University Research Park-Madison and the UW-Milwaukee Innovation Center.
