2nd Annual UWM Innovation Park Collaborative Discussion
The development of UWM Innovation Park – a graduate-level engineering campus on the Milwaukee County Grounds in Wauwatosa – represents a great opportunity to establish research collaborations between institutions. In September 2011 the first ever UWM Innovation Park Panel Discussion was held at the Medical College of Wisconsin. David Gilbert, President, UWM Real Estate Foundation, Brian Thompson, President, UWM Real Estate Foundation and Doug Stafford, PhD, Director, Milwaukee Institute for Drug Discovery joined us to present the Innovation Park vision and discuss collaborative partnership opportunities.
This marked the beginning of opportunity for face-to-face interactions that will be expanded to facilitate future collaborations. Many positive ideas manifested out of the discussion last September including the desire to continue the discussion with specific UWM and MCW faculty who could be natural partners for collaborations.
On March 13, 2012 we will continue the discussion. Three Research Group Areas have been created to provide participants with an opportunity to be part of in-depth discussions on topics of their interest:
- Neuroscience Rehabilitation
- Joint Dynamics
- Imaging and Sensors
Join us on Tuesday, March 13th from 2:30-4:00pm at the Medical College of Wisconsin in the Health Research Center conference room H1230 for the 2nd Annual UWM Innovation Park Collaborative Discussion. All MCW faculty and staff are invited to attend.
Please RSVP to Anita Spencer Stevens at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 2nd UWM Innovation Park Discussion and include your research focus.
This event is co-hosted by the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the Medical College of Wisconsin, the MCW Biotechnology and Bioengineering Center and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
