Funded Research

A variety of funded research activities are carried out by the Department of Pathology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, including research that is funded by Government Agencies (NIH, DOD, and others), Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin (AHW) endowment, and various other private and commercial sources. The department also actively collaborates with several of the other departments in campus and with outside institutions in funded research.

Active collaboration in funded projects is promoted through our Clinical and Translational Research Core Lab, which houses the capability to support researchers throughout campus with a variety of specialized molecular techniques on solid tissue samples. Funded research is also supported by the department through the activities of our MCW Tissue bank, which is housed and operated by the Department of Pathology.
