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 translational/clinical research on malignant and non-malignant blood science, 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 blood Carbone Cancer Centerresearchers with a central organizational structure.

Major goals include:

  1. Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine CenterCatalyze innovative, multidisciplinary scientific and clinical advances on normal and malignant blood cell and blood vessel development and function.
  2. Leverage discoveries to advance genomic medicine and patient care.
  3. Provide unique multi-disciplinary training in state-of-the-art biomedical research.
  4. 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 concepts and technologies to solve complex problems related to blood cancers and other blood diseases. Major new efforts are being developed in emerging areas including multi-omics, personalized/precision genetic medicine and the interface between hematology and immunology e.g. in the context of immunotherapy.
