Medical College of Wisconsin Center Boards

The Advisory Boards of the Medical College of Wisconsin play a critical role in increasing commu­nity awareness of the College’s major programs and raising private funds. The Advisory Boards include Wisconsin’s top business, professional and civic leaders who are committed to advancing medical research at the College.

Medical research is the necessary step to discovering improved methods to diagnose, treat and ultimately cure and prevent diseases. Private support is more important than ever as competition increases for federal grant support.

The fundraising efforts of Advisory Board members have supported:

  • Seed funding, which allows researchers to develop a track record to compete for and leverage long-term federal funds. Seed funds have led to and will continue to lead to larger federal or private agency grants that have the potential to result in breakthrough treatments and cures for disease. Bridge funding for researchers while they renew grants.
     
  • Advanced training for physicians and scientists.
     
  • The purchase of research equipment.
     
  • Professorships and fellowships for conducting research.
