University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee (UWM) is one of the state’s two public doctoral research institutions and it shares a rich, collaborative research history with MCW in projects spanning microbiology, pharmacology, neurodevelopment, toxicology, endocrinology, orthopedics, kinesiology, infectious disease, environmental health and education. Faculty from UWM’s Colleges of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Health Sciences, Letters and Science, Nursing, as well as the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare, Lubar School of Business and the newly formed Schools of Public Health and Freshwater Sciences are represented in CTSI.
UWM also has partnerships and alliances with a number of commercial enterprises that can be engaged in the work of CTSI, such as those involved in health care informatics, pharmaceuticals, and several early-stage biotechnology companies with marketable products in development. Today, UWM is building on the strengths of the faculty in research relevant to CTSI such as addiction and behavioral health, bioengineering and imaging, children’s environmental health, freshwater science, health care informatics, and self-management of chronic illness. UWM’s commitment to developing research and educational partnerships is exemplified by its linkages to CTSI and its partnering institutions, international collaborations in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and new university-industry consortia.
