BTP Research Activities

The NIGMS-funded Biotechnology Training Program (BTP) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison provides foundational training for predoctoral students engaged in cutting-edge research across the interface of the biological, physical, and engineering sciences.

Graduate trainees play a key role in all research done at UW-Madison; and this is even more so with the trainees and trainers participating in the BTP. BTP trainees carry out dissertation research at the cutting edge of their chosen discipline. All core departments of the BTP have orientation and rotation programs to assist new graduate students in finding a research mentor. BTP trainers participate in an extensive net of collaborative studies that provide outstanding opportunities for research carried out by their students. These collaborations have produced scientific and technological progress, publications, and intellectual property that no group alone could have acquired.
