Major grant advances UW's clinical and translational research enterprise
Date:9/18/2007

MADISON -- The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded the University of Wisconsin-Madison's new Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) one of the largest grants in the history of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, making UW-Madison a key player in an ambitious NIH plan to transform the country's clinical and translational research enterprise.

The primary goal of the plan is to find ways to do a better job of moving biomedical and health sciences discoveries into practical use in health care providers' offices, clinics and hospitals, where the new knowledge can be used most rapidly and effectively to improve peoples' health.

With $41 million over five years, ICTR will aggressively address clinical and translational research in Wisconsin by first building a network of key partners from across campus and around the state. Representatives of the four UW-Madison health sciences schools (medicine and public health, nursing, pharmacy and veterinary medicine) and the College of Engineering are integrally involved, along with the Marshfield Clinic.

With an infrastructure in place, the institute will expand training programs and coordinate an array of resources and services for both new and established investigators. Input from public health departments and community health offices throughout Wisconsin will be essential to ensuring that the research is relevant and reaches people and areas with the greatest needs.

"When you combine UW-Madison's world-class strengths in both the basic and clinical sciences, its developing strength in public health and the collaborations it has nurtured with health care and public health institutions around the state, it makes complete sense that the university would be chosen to be involved in this transformative national initiative," says UW-Madison Chancellor John D.
