Our Vision

Our vision is to solve major challenges to human health by serving as an interdisciplinary research center and a collaborative hub that enables investigators to address and answer fundamental biomedical questions.

Our private status and streamlined organizational structure allow us to respond nimbly to emerging opportunities. We can take well-advised risks on promising but unproven research areas, provide early-stage funding to seed innovative ideas, and serve as a private partner in UW-Madison grant proposals.

Through community engagement, we are promoting a better understanding of the value of biomedical research to thousands of visitors annually.
