Big Ideas and Research Laboratories Converge Here

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is uniquely suited to serve as an international model of coordinated parallel translation, leveraging the existing strong collaborative foundation here between the Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Neuroscience, Neurological Surgery and Neurology, as well as the Grainger Institute for Engineering, the Morgridge Institute for Research and the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery.

As a result, WITNe allows for research to be conducted across labs, communicating and sharing without hinderance. We share knowledge, resources, people, collaborator networks, animal models, grant support, access to industry contacts, training opportunities and increased visibility through the WITNe platform.

Pioneering Parallel Translation

The Wisconsin Institute for Translational Neuroengineering (WITNe) brings together multidisciplinary laboratories using novel and existing technologies to better understand and improve neurological disorders and clinical neuromodulation therapies.

WITNe labs “pioneer parallel translation” by working together to increase the rate of transfer of basic science discovery—in neural interface design, neuromodulation and imaging of the central and peripheral nervous systems—into routine clinical practice.
