Wisconsin Institution for Discovery

Nathaniel Liedl on Governor Doyle's plans to build a $375M research institution on the UW Campus:

The facility would include specialists in biochemistry, nanotechnology, computer engineering and bioinformatics, which would ease collaboration between scientists of different backgrounds, Doyle said during the press conference.

According to UW Chancellor John Wiley, the facility would occupy the entire block between University Avenue, West Johnson and North Charter streets and North Randall Avenue.

“We are replacing one of the ugliest blocks on campus,” Wiley said during the conference.

The Psychology Department will likely be moved to Sterling Hall. The UW Physical Plant would be relocated to the space Lot 51 currently occupies.
