The Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery is focused on conducting world-class interdisciplinary biomedical research spanning the fields of biology, nanotechnology and information. The goals of the institutes are to improve human health and well-being through breakthrough scientific research, and enhance the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s already considerable strengths in interdisciplinary biomedical research.

The innovative facility housing the twin private and public institutes of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery has been designed to prompt interpersonal interactions among researchers of various disciplines in efforts to facilitate new and unexpected collaborations that result in breakthrough discoveries.

The Morgridge Institute’s research mission emphasizes the organization’s focus on advancing basic science while achieving breakthroughs that improve human health and well-being. The research programming of the public Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, of the UW–Madison Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, was determined by a competition open to the university’s researchers.
