Basic, Clinical & Translational Research Pathway

Driving research discoveries by advancing the work of biomedical researchers to translate research from the lab bench to patient bedside to community and back, creating the new knowledge necessary to address Wisconsin’s health needs.


Propelling promising work and ideas across biomedical research to increase discovery, accelerate the translation and dissemination of new knowledge, and develop effective and sustainable research partnerships.

Partnering for Change …

with basic science, clinical, and translational researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin to advance the research and clinical care necessary to improve health in Wisconsin communities

Creating Opportunities for Impact …

in Wisconsin’s biomedical research landscape by

  • Investing grant dollars in innovative research and strategic partnerships that contribute to greater understanding of, and an increased capacity to address, the biological and genetic factors that influence health
  • Connecting basic, clinical, and translational investigators through programming to educate around Wisconsin’s health needs and facilitate the sharing of ideas and resources
  • Influencing progress through both funding awards and programming initiatives that enhance skills and abilities of those involved in health research in Wisconsin

Producing Outcomes for a Healthier Wisconsin …

by developing innovative research and discovery, translating and disseminating new knowledge, and promoting effective partnerships
