Affiliations Centers


University of Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Center (UWCCC)


A major collaborative research unit with the Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics is the University of Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Center (UWCCC). The University of Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Center (UWCCC) is a multi-disciplinary comprehensive center serving Wisconsin and adjoining areas of Iowa and Illinois. It conducts clinical and basic science research in the biology of cancer, focused on human problems in etiology, prevention, and treatment. The UWCCC is among the world's leaders in research in breast, prostate and bladder cancers, and has outstanding faculties in medical oncology, surgical oncology, pediatric oncology, radiation oncology, and medical physics. The Center strives to improve care of the cancer patient through clinical trials including local and national studies. Cancer prevention and evaluation of new agents and treatments with combined modalities receive particular emphasis.


The UWCCC Biostatistics Shared Resource and Cancer Informatics Shared Resource, as part of the Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics, have over the past decade provided statistical and computing expertise to members of the UWCCC in the design, conduct, and analysis of laboratory, clinical, and epidemiologic studies. The mission of the Biostatistics Shared Resource and Cancer Informatics Shared Resource is to support and help promote high quality, innovative cancer research by providing the UWCCC with high level expertise in biostatistics and biomedical computing.

  General Clinical Research Center

The UW-GCRC is an NIH-funded clinical research center within the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. The GCRC mission is to offer an optimal setting for medical investigators to conduct safe, controlled, state-of-the-art research. The 12-room inpatient/outpatient unit has a core staff of 15 highly-trained research nurses who provide quality, safety, and a caring environment.


  Genome Center of Wisconsin

The Genome Center's 30 faculty members represent over 17 departments and six schools within the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  The Genome Center fosters integrative and

highly collaborative research that bridges multiple, diverse disciplines.  Faculty members are involved in genomic research, graduate and undergraduate teaching,

and pre- and post-doctoral training.

Participating departments and centers


  The Waisman Center

Research at the Waisman Center focuses on human development, developmental disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases. More than 50 faculty from 26 UW-Madison departments conduct research at the center and bring a wide variety of scientific approaches to bear on questions about development and disabilities. These approaches can be classified as biomedical, behavioral, or social.


  Cardiovascular Research Center

Working together, Center members combine their unique perspectives, generate new ideas and reduce the time it takes to "translate" new discoveries from laboratories to the aid of patients.

  Institute on Aging
  The Institute on Aging (IOA) provides world-class research programs designed to address the causes of later life problems as well as how they are most effectively treated or prevented. Additionally, the IOA also recognizes the need to focus on the potential of aging - the notable strengths, resources, and vitality of those who are in their 70s and beyond.
