Our industrial partners have provided state-of-the-art imaging equipment and access to research platforms for our scientists to create new imaging methods and applications. The imaging research center provides state-of-the-art laboratory, office, teaching, and interactive space for more than 250 Radiology and Medical Physics researchers.
One of only two cities in North America situated on an isthmus, Madison shares many qualities with other well-known “college towns” like Berkeley and Austin – including a creative and educated population – but retains a small-town feel. There are many outstanding restaurants, an active theater community, live music, more than 250 parks, a plethora of summer and winter outdoor activities and good shopping – yet Madison is just minutes from the beautiful rural countryside. National groups and magazines rank Madison highly for being a very bike-friendly city and a great place to raise a family, with a healthy and fit population, great health care and education systems, and an overall high quality of life.
