Yes, it is rocket science: The past couple of months have been very, very good for a pair of up-and-coming Monona businesses: SHINE Medical Technologies and Phoenix Nuclear Laboratories.
Both were founded by Gregory Piefer, who has a doctorate in nuclear engineering and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering, physics and computer engineering from the UW-Madison.
Madison, WI – The University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering has awarded Dr. Greg Piefer, founder and CEO of SHINE Medical Technologies, Inc. (SHINE) the Early-Career Achievement Award. The award honors young alumni whose achievements stand out as exceptional, typically within 10 years of graduation.
