Extraordinary Discoveries Impacting Everyday Lives
Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) scientists lead biomedical and population health advancements through laboratory research, clinical trials and community-engaged research. These studies are conducted in collaboration with local, national and global thought leaders and innovators. Research drives the kinds of new knowledge that can change everything, including the ways we define, diagnose, treat and prevent disease, as well as how we train the next generation to push forward at the boundaries of what is possible.
Great discoveries are not limited by an institution’s walls. To bring new discoveries to our patients, MCW collaborates with dozens of hospitals, universities, community clinics, government entities and companies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, imaging, medical device and software industries.
Patents and Licenses
The most influential discoveries directly improve patients’ lives. The preparation of new technologies for worldwide commercial use is an important driver of discovery. MCW has nearly 300 U.S. and foreign patents (pending and issued), and more than 60 license agreements with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
MCW is a distinguished leader, providing cutting-edge, collaborative patient care of the highest quality in hospitals and clinics across Wisconsin. Our researchers discover and translate new knowledge in biomedical and health sciences to transform healthcare. We educate the next generation of doctors, scientists and pharmacists through innovative programs on three campuses across Wisconsin.
