The important work done in WID’s collaborative network does not end with publication in scientific journals. A key part of WID’s mission is to share our discoveries with our community and the world — here, we tell the story of our unique approach to scientific inquiry, our connections on campus and beyond, and the incredible discoveries that can change our world.
