Email Research Systems Training; visit the eBridge Support web site

eBridge Support
Please contact the eBridge Help Desk if you have questions regarding registering, navigating, or entering information into eBridge. eBridge staff will respond to these messages within 4 hours of receipt during normal business hours. Email eBridge Help Desk; visit the eBridge Support web site


Grants & Contracts


Office of Grants and Contracts
The Office of Grants and Contracts (GCO) supports investigators and the MCW research community in submitting high quality, competitive and compliant research. Email the GCO; visit the GCO web site


Faculty Collaboration Database


The Faculty Collaboration Database (FCD) is a resource for facilitating collaborative research among faculty members by providing profiles of fellow faculty members and allowing for detailed and extensive searches within the database. Each Medical College of Wisconsin faculty member is represented within the FCD with basic information such as department, division, grants, and title. Faculty can add additional information such as research expertise, clinical expertise, methodologies, leadership positions, education and publications to create a more robust Profile. Faculty may also upload their complete Curriculum Vitae (CV). Faculty may choose to suppress select information on their CV so that information is not available to the public. Please note that individual faculty members are responsible for updating their Profile and CV on a regular basis.  View the Faculty Collaboration Database
