University of Wisconsin–Madison

The UW-Madison CTSA

The goal of the University of Wisconsin Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (UW ICTR) is to create an environment that transforms research into a continuum from investigation through discovery and to translation into real-life community practice, thereby linking even the most basic research to practical improvements in human health.

Through the interdisciplinary nature of the ICTR (Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacy) and the College of Engineering, the mission is to change the UW culture from “silos” to collaborations among ICTR members and within the entire university. With this UW team and ICTR’s northern partner Marshfield Clinic, our Institute expects major advancements in clinical and translational research.
