Benefunder: Upcoming webinars for interested faculty

CALS faculty have two upcoming opportunities in January to learn about Benefunder, an organization that helps donors invest in research projects and other causes that they care about.

The two webinars are scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 21 at 10:00 a.m. and Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 1:00 p.m. Attendees can click here to register.

Benefunder is interested in including more UW-Madison faculty on their site, particularly junior faculty. They are open to considering proposals from faculty across all disciplines, but are especially interested in showcasing faculty who are conducting research in the following areas:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • autism therapy
  • batteries
  • breast cancer
  • clean drinking water
  • deep space exploration
  • disaster relief
  • healthy aging and wellness
  • internet of things / internet of everything
  • lung cancer
  • poverty
  • rare pediatric diseases
  • STEM for underrepresented minorities
