In the interconnected world of science and medicine, research is critical. Versiti’s research spans basic, translational and clinical research that focuses on blood disorders. Our research discoveries make tangible contributions to the care of patients.
Basic research is housed at the Blood Research Institute (BRI), a state-of-the-art facility that gives investigators access to cutting-edge research equipment and related specialized services. The BRI is located on the campus of the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center, along with the Medical College of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. In addition to the intellectual capital and resources within Versiti, the local density of healthcare and research facilities provides us with a rich environment for biomedical research. Clinical scientists at Versiti’s Medical Sciences Institute (MSI) facilitate opportunities to identify and engage in collaborative translational research. Contract research scientists aid industry partners in custom projects that help advance innovative drugs, products and services.
