    We Care Fund for Medical Innovation and Research

    The partnership  between scientists and clinicians in the Department of Surgery led to the launch of the We Care Fund, which supports innovative medical research and clinical programs in the fields of cancer, cardiovascular disease, organ transplantation and trauma. Projects supported by this fund bring hope and innovative treatment plans to patients and their families by translating new medical discoveries from the laboratory for use in the operating room, the bedside, and the clinic.

    Why We Care
    Patients with cancer, organ failure, and complications from trauma or cardiovascular diseases are searching for two things: hope and a clear plan of treatment.

    Hope and Innovation
    Bringing hope and innovation treatment plans to patients and their families depends on translating new medical discoveries from the laboratory for use in the operating room, the bedside, and the clinic. The mission of the We Care Fund is to support researchers and physicians who are creating cutting-edge therapies and clinical programs that benefit patients in Wisconsin and throughout the world.

    Our Goal
    The We Care Fund supports research in the fields of cancer, cardiovascular disease, organ transplantation, and trauma. Traditional funding mechanisms supporting basic science and clinical care can take months, even years. Some of the most promising and exciting solutions simply cannot wait that long. Our goal is to accelerate the development of those advanced, life-saving solutions by engaging the local community to help bring the best healthcare to Wisconsin.
