The BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute (BTC Institute)

This not-for-profit organization founded by Promega in 1993 and located on the Madison, WI campus provides educational, scientific and cultural enrichment experiences. Educational programs focus on the life sciences for a wide range of learners from upper elementary students to college and graduate students, as well as career scientists in academia and industry and the general public.

During the 2018–2019 academic year, approximately 3000 middle and high school students participated in the BTC Institute’s Biotechnology Field Trips program. Students and their teachers either visited BTC Institute labs for hands-on, molecular biology-based education or were served by an on-the-road program that brings BTC Institute teachers and lab activities directly to classrooms. In addition, 28 teachers participated in two week-long summer courses designed for middle and high school teachers to facilitate integration of biotechnology topics and techniques into their current syllabi in their own classrooms. Teachers represented a wide range of educational settings including rural, suburban and urban.

Annually, BTC Institute hosts the International Forum on Consciousness, bringing together the worlds of natural and social sciences, and the Wisconsin Stem Cell Symposium in partnership with the UW-Madison Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center.
