UWM launches new edition of UWM Research magazine

The 2020 edition of UWM Research magazine, now available in print and online, showcases the efforts of more than 100 faculty members, students and staff.

The magazine “is a showcase of the public-impact research that benefits our neighbors in the greater Milwaukee region as well as the broader Wisconsin community and the world beyond,” UWM Chancellor Mark Mone writes in the welcome message. “Throughout this publication, you’ll see example after example of the groundbreaking work pursued by our remarkable faculty members, staff and students, and I’m delighted to share it with you.”

With nearly 60 stories, the 2020 edition features work from each of UWM’s research-conducting schools and colleges. In addition to in-depth features, stunning photography and eye-catching design, you’ll find spotlight sections on entrepreneurship and health, as well as special sections dedicated to the impressive work of UWM’s undergraduate and graduate researchers.

The magazine’s online version augments those stories with engaging multimedia packages, including infographics, videos and photo slideshows.

The cover story about the Milwaukee Institute for Drug Discovery explores its foundational research into drug compounds with the potential to become life-changing treatments, as well as entrepreneurial efforts to further the research.

Other stories cut across a broad range of topics, including microgrid technology, sound synthesis, helping people with hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and seeking earlier interventions for PTSD. You’ll explore research highlighting the importance of black men having a voice in fostering community change and the need for helping teachers to work better with bilingual students. You’ll read about UWM’s freshwater sciences research vessel, the Neeskay, as well as plans for a new state-of-the-art research vessel, the Maggi Sue. And you’ll explore some of the latest books published by UWM faculty members.

Throughout the magazine, you’ll see how Wisconsin’s only urban, engaged research university continues to make a positive impact. It’s a celebration of UWM’s deep commitment to protecting our precious natural resources, improving our cities’ infrastructures and seeking solutions by partnering with people in our community.
