Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Medicine Research

Our mission is to promote a culture of scientific inquiry, collaboration, and curiosity by bringing together clinicians and scientists from across multiple disciplines to engage in cutting-edge biomedical research that ultimately improves the health of our patients through the detection, prevention, and/or treatment of human disease. With research spanning a wide spectrum including basic, clinical, and translational research, as well as studies in population health, health disparities, quality improvement, and medical education, we support an environment that enhances patient care and helps train the next generation of physicians and biomedical scientists to engage in innovative research that ultimately serves and benefits our community.
