Two Faculty Featured on Big Ten Network's 'Forward Motion'

Madison, Wisconsin - Two faculty from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health were featured on "Forward Motion," a 30-minute news magazine spotlighting the inspiration behind some of UW-Madison's most innovative research and teaching.


The program aired on the Big Ten Network.


"The university has an international profile, but the stories behind the teaching, research and outreach efforts are often the most compelling," says Peter Kleppin, UW-Madison's director of campus programming for the Big Ten Network. "We're excited to share these stories with a wider audience."


The program featured two stories demonstrating examples of leading research and patient care:

  • Perry Pickhardt, an ambitious young radiologist, pioneered a virtual colonoscopy procedure - and, in the process, helped his own family.

  • A patient and his family inspired neurosurgeon and biomedical engineer Josh Medow to find the "Holy Grail" of brain monitoring.

University Communications and Marketing produces UW-Madison's campus programming for the Big Ten Network, which launched in 2007 and reaches about 90 million households in North America.
