“We created the ‘Dare to Discover’ website to provide the citizens of Iowa a direct and accessible link to the University of Iowa research enterprise. We view it as a virtual doorway through which educators, students, and community leaders can enter and tap the resources of a major public university,” 
- Dan Reed, vice president for research and economic development
