About The UW Blood Research Program
The UW-Madison has a rich history in fundamental and clinical blood research, which has been distributed across multiple departments. The UW-Madison Blood Research Program was established in January of 2013, under the auspices of the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and in collaboration with the Carbone Cancer Center and the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center, to unite outstanding blood researchers under the auspices of a central organizational structure.
Major goals include:
- Catalyze multidisciplinary scientific and clinical advances on normal and malignant blood cell and blood vessel development/function;
- Provide unique training opportunities in this important realm of biomedical research; and
- Serve as an intellectual hub for scientists/scholars and the public.
Revolutionary conceptual and technological advances are transforming biomedical science. UW-Madison Blood Research Program investigators are forging and applying these concepts and technologies to solve complex problems related to the physiology and pathology of blood cells and blood vessels as well as stem and progenitor cells that give rise to the blood and vascular systems. Major new efforts are being developed in emerging areas including personalized/precision medicine and immunotherapy.
