Investing in Research


Investing in Research


The UW Science Initiative’s innovative programs will stimulate research, leading to fundamental discoveries.

By Micaela Myers

Gravity, electricity, transistor theory, penicillin, the structure of DNA, X-rays, vaccines, communication via satellites—all these discoveries and countless others came about through the hard work and research of scientists.

The core sciences at the University of Wyoming—including botany, chemistry, molecular biology, physics and astronomy, and zoology and physiology—study what exists in nature and how it works. The fundamental discoveries emerging from physical and biological sciences become the foundations of future technology, engineering and medicine. Recognizing this, UW’s Science Initiative provides support for scientific research.

Here, we introduce you to five researchers from the core science departments, and we share the new research support programs aimed at promoting research for undergraduates, graduate students and faculty members.
