UW Current

Discovery is at the heart of our university.

  • Do you wonder whether Pacific Northwesterners have an accent?
  • Are you curious what your eyes reveal about your risk of Alzheimer’s?
  • Do you know what your car’s worn tires mean for coho salmon?

UW’s community of experts, researchers, artists, students and talented individuals are driven by the same curiosity and a need to channel their knowledge for good.
