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 2017–2018 academic year, the ever-popular Biotechnology Field Trips program served approximately 3,000 middle- and high-school students from Wisconsin and Illinois. Students and their teachers either visited BTC Institute labs for hands-on, molecular biology-based field trips or were served by an on-the-road program that brings BTC Institute teachers and lab activities directly to classrooms. These students participated in more than 4,000 lab experiences. In addition, the BTC Institute offered six graduate level courses for UW-Madison, including all three Molecular Technologies courses for the Master’s in Biotechnology Program.
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.
