Time to SHINE: UW, Morgridge spinoff has great hopes for fusion’s future

Greg Piefer was a Ph.D. student in the UW-Madison nuclear engineering program when he founded SHINE, a fusion energy company based in Janesville. With origins that date back to 2005, SHINE has a journey that is emblematic of the heartland’s tech entrepreneurial boom.

One of the exciting near-term technologies for SHINE is diagnosing and treating disease through the creation of medical isotopes, which are used in tens of millions of procedures each year. SHINE has developed a novel fusion technology to safely produce these isotopes without the need for enriched uranium.
