Research for a Healthier Tomorrow
Research for a Healthier Tomorrow is one of three components of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The Research for a Healthier Tomorrow Program provides an opportunity for MCW physicians and scientists to improve the health of the people of Wisconsin through advances in the basic, clinical applied and translational sciences that focus on cardiovascular disease, cancer, neuroscience, genetics, and population health. MCW hopes these efforts will lead to an increased understanding of disease mechanisms and to new methods of diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease.
Progress in medical research has always drawn upon insights from other fields of science including basic biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and many fields of engineering. Now, more than ever before, progress in medical research is being enhanced by research from other disciplines. This century will be a time of change and discovery, yet the essential reality of human suffering due to health-related problems will surely persist.
Improvements in human health are achieved through research in the basic, clinical, applied and translational sciences. The Medical College of Wisconsin awards research funding from the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment that leverages academic expertise and assets to promote discoveries that advance human health.
A list of previously funded projects is available via the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Annual Reports.
