Center for Immunology

The Center for Immunology was established in 2018 and built on a strong decade-long informal group known as the Committee on Immunology that spanned investigators at the MCW, the Children’s Research Institute and Versiti Blood Research Institute.  The Center for Immunology combines expertise in basic and clinical immunology to accomplish two goals across MCW:

  • Integrate immunological resources around emerging needs in clinical care that will constitute the personalized healthcare of tomorrow
  • Coordinate immunological research investment capacity by coordinating Center communications and interactions

The comprehensive Center for Immunology coordinates the resources, investments, and research strengths in immunology to build additional capacity in basic and translational research, enhance patient care, and strengthen MCW’s connection to the community.  To achieve these strategic goals the Center for Immunology empowers clinicians and basic scientist collaboration in translational research, to understand immune pathology and pathophysiology, and to develop individualized and effective treatments for our patients. Congruent with these translational goals the Center will streamline the education and training of tomorrow’s physician scientists so that they are conversant in the use of immune-based therapies and confident in initiating cutting-edge trials with new therapies.

The Children’s Research Institute

The long-standing financial commitment by Children’s Wisconsin to supporting pediatric research was formalized in 2003 by creating the Children’s Research Institute (CRI).  In 2007, dedicated pediatric laboratory research space was expanded by adding nearly 100,000 square feet of lab space in a new building, which provides infrastructure and other support for pediatric investigators conducting child health research.  Children’s Wisconsin prioritizes research as a philanthropic cause to stimulate research activity and provides ~ $16 million annually to support pediatric research annually inclusive of philanthropy and overhead.  The CRI’s academic partners include the Medical College of Wisconsin, UW-Milwaukee, and Marquette University. Types of support provided by the CRI include: (1) supplemental grant support for early-stage investigators; (2) competitive pilot grants to help investigators test new ideas; (3) shared services including biostatistics, flow cytometry, and a pediatric translational research unit staffed by pediatric nurses.
