About The UW Blood Research Program

The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public HealthThe 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 Carbone Cancer Centerresearchers under the auspices of a central organizational structure.

Major goals include:

  1. Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine CenterCatalyze multidisciplinary scientific and clinical advances on normal and malignant blood cell and blood vessel development and function;
  2. Provide unique multi-disciplinary training opportunities in this important realm of biomedical research; and
  3. Serve as an intellectual hub for established scientists/scholars, trainees and the public.


Revolutionary conceptual and technological advances are transforming biomedical science. UW-Madison Blood Research Program investigators are innovating 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 multi-omics, personalized/precision medicine and immunotherapy.
