Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery is a visionary public-private partnership that is creating two world-class biomedical research institutes. Its partners include donors John and Tashia Morgridge, the state of Wisconsin, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF).
Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, which opened in December 2010, houses twin interdisciplinary research institutes: the Morgridge Institute for Research, a private, not-for-profit research institute dedicated to improving human health by accelerating scientific discovery to patient delivery; and the public Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, which is part of UW–Madison organized under its Graduate School. The state-of-the-art facility brings together scientists and researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines, such as the arts, humanities, social sciences, education, business and law. It also includes extensive public spaces in its Town Center intended to promote dialogue as a fertile crossroads for ideas among diverse parts of UW–Madison and the larger community.
The Town Center is also home to Steenbock's On Orchard as well as Aldo's Cafe . Additionally, the Town Center has open areas, with tables and chairs, available for public use, as well as break out and presentation rooms available for rental. Information about renting spaces in the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery can be found at http://discovery.wisc.edu/home/town-center/apply-to-reserve-town-center-spaces/reserving-spaces-at-the-town-center-home.cmsx. Men's and Women's restrooms are available for public use of the first floor, and in addition, there is a private, locking restroom that may be used for families, changing diapers and nursing mothers.
