About

The Illuminating Discovery Hub forms partnerships with the outreach infrastructure of the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation’s Town Center, the Morgridge Institute for Research, and other campus and national organizations to establish bridges among scientists, professional communicators, and members of the public. In collaboration with bioethicists, journalists, social scientists, media producers, and campus communicators, the Hub offers training programs in effective science communication, public discourse, and media representation. The Hub facilitates campus-wide, community, and national discussions about illuminating discovery, science and engineering research, the role of science and technology in society, and the image of scientists, engineers, and mathematicians.

The Illuminating Discovery Hub, like the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery’s other hubs, is new and still growing. We encourage you to join us in building a collaborative community.
