UWM Students Shine At Research In The Rotunda

UWM Students Shine At Research In The Rotunda

Nearly 130 students and their faculty mentors from every UW campus across the state – including an impressive group from UW-Milwaukee – traveled to the State Capitol in Madison last week to showcase their important and innovative research at the UW System’s 15th Annual Research in the Rotunda event.

Students presented their work to the public, state legislators, UW alumni, and other supporters while demonstrating its potential impact on Wisconsin and its economy.

“The research projects on display today embody the personal and intellectual growth these students have experienced on campus,” said UW System President Ray Cross. “They are a tangible representation of our ongoing commitment to expanding knowledge beyond our campuses and represent the kind of ideas that are instrumental to the future success of our state and its economy.”

UWM’s delegation featured five projects:

A Computer Model to Simulate the Nanoscale Force Response of Protein Hydrogels Kirill Shmilovich, Whitefish Bay, WI

African American Males’ Perception of High School Teacher Efficacy Carl Greer, Milwaukee, WI

Engineering Enzymes Involved in Non-Ribosomal Peptide Antibiotic Synthesis Brandon Patterson, Clinton, WI Co-authors: Lanlan Han, Nemanja Vuksanovic
