Established in 1973, the Waisman Center is the focal point at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for biomedical, behavioral and social science research in human development, developmental disabilities and neurodegenerative disease. The Center also is an international resource for people with developmental disabilities and their families, providing services such as clinical diagnosis, genetic counseling, treatment and intervention, and early childhood education.

Public-private partnerships have been vital to Center’s ability to fulfill its commitment to improving the lives of people with developmental disabilities and neurodegenerative disorders and their families. There are numerous opportunities for giving, ranging from gifts to support renovation of the Center’s physical infrastructure to an endowment for its innovative brain imaging program.
