UW–Madison Day at the State Capitol, an advocacy and outreach event, was held April 10. More than 20 graduate student research projects on display included pollinators in Wisconsin agricultural landscapes, glaucoma treatment, how to treat multidrug-resistant bacterial infections, learning companion robotics, chemotherapy drug effectiveness, and more. Legislators and staff heard flash talks by UW experts in everything from comparative oncology to small business development. UW–Madison alumni participated in individual meetings with their state senators and representatives, followed by a reception featuring remarks from Wisconsin coaches Greg Gard and Jonathan Tsipis.
