The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation has announced its latest group of projects for the UW2020: WARF Discovery Initiative, which funnels millions of dollars into research.
Out of the 21 projects receiving money from WARF, eight are infrastructure-related, while 13 are research projects. Of those 13, six are directly related to understanding, treating or preventing human sickness.
Over 137 faculty from 10 schools and colleges on the UW-Madison campus are represented in these projects, which are funded for two years with an average award of $372,923. This most recent round bring the total number of awardees to 49 since the initiative began last year.
“These awards position our faculty to be even more successful as they apply for extramural funding in an increasingly competitive environment,” said Marsha Mailick, UW-Madison vice chancellor for research and graduate education.
