Research ideas get go-ahead

Abstract:
"The mission of the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery is very broad, and so in a sense these seed grants embody that mission," said Mailick Seltzer, interim director of the institutes' public half, known as the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID), and director of UW- Madison's Waisman Center. "Our goal in general is to enhance human health and welfare through interdisciplinary research spanning nanotechnology, biotechnology and information technology."

The eight winning research proposals, out of a field that included more than 220 letters of intent, encompass methods for discovering new drugs and early detection of disease; treatments for inflammatory diseases, attention-deficit disorder and chronic wounds.
