The Greater Milwaukee foundation has named Biophysics trainer Dr. Randall Goldsmith of one of two University of Wisconsin - Madison researchers to be named Shaw scientists. This honor is bestowed upon young scientists in ground-breaking research. As a reward, Shaw scientists receive $200,000 in unrestricted research support which Dr. Goldsmith plans to use to study a protein called tau, a protein which supports the cellular wiring that connects neurons in the brain.
