The CTSI is an innovative infrastructure to support and advance education, collaboration, and research in clinical and translational science.


To create a borderless, complementary and synergistic research environment in southeast Wisconsin to translate discoveries into better health of our citizens while simultaneously providing comprehensive educational and training programs to develop the next generation of Clinical and Translational Researchers.

Mission & Strategic Aims

The successful and rapid translation of fundamental discoveries into better health for our communities requires a clinical and translational science network that is robust, multidisciplinary, and national in scope.

The mission of the CTSI, a unique academic-community partnership between five area academic institutions and three hospitals, is to develop an integrated, shared home for clinical and translational research and research training, hallmarked by a borderless, collaborative, synergistic, and investigator/community/patient-friendly, research environment that is functionally integrated into regional and national CTSA networks.

Strategic aims

  • To empower the southeast Wisconsin CTSA hub to play a major role in the clinical and translational research agenda of the nation.
  • To maximize the translational capabilities and impact of our CTSA hub and its investigators.
  • To create a mutually learning “Health Care Enterprise-CTSA – eco system” that facilitates and broadens the reach of our translational research engine into health systems and patient stakeholders to generate/test hypotheses and implement best practices.
