The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a premier biomedical research institution with multidisciplinary training opportunities in basic and clinical research. The scope and quality of biological research on campus consistently place us among the top ten institutions nationally in genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology. We have access to all major research facilities on campus, which include core facilities for biophysical protein analysis, proteomics, genomics, molecular biology, micro-arrays, bioinformatics, small molecule screening, specialized microscopy techniques, and the creation of transgenic and knock-out mice. The Cardiovascular Research Institute, the NIH-supported Clinical Research Unit, and an NCI-designated Paul P. Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center, provide core facilities and support for multidisciplinary research endeavors. The Regional Primate Research Center is one of eight NIH-funded facilities (the only one in the Midwest) with specialized facilities and highly trained personnel for experiments with a variety of nonhuman primates.
*Interdisciplinary Research Center at the CSC, the first phase to be completedby summer, 2008; the first phase will consist of a 'pedestal' that will have serviceand animal facilities to support three research towers and the first of the researchtowers; researchers in the first tower will do translational research related tocancer, cardiovascular research, imaging, and regenerative medicine.
*Wisconsin Institute of Medical Research (WiMR) on central campus combines biology,bioinformatics, computer science, engineering, nanotechnology and other fields in one setting; construction has been completed on two of the three phases planned.
