As the region's only independent health care system dedicated solely to the health and well-being of children, our research attracts pioneering researchers in their fields. As researchers leap into the unknown, we work collaboratively with academic providers who translate innovative ideas into new breakthroughs. We represent the most powerful concentration of pediatric research in the region.
Many of the pediatric physicians, advanced practice providers and scientists who perform research that is advancing care at Children’s Wisconsin are from the Medical College of Wisconsin. They collaborate with experts and organizations regionally and nationally to further treatment options and enhance health care possibilities for children everywhere.
Welcome to tomorrow's medicine.
Welcome! You and your children inspire and motivate our researchers every day. Together, we'll work to develop cutting-edge treatments and improve the lives and health of children everywhere.
Whether you're looking to join Children's Research Institute or collaborate with our talented staff, we invite you to explore our work in more depth. (Current institute investigators can find additional resources on the Children's Wisconsin intranet.)
We're proud of all that we've done, but are excited of where we're going. With your help, we can find better treatments for children who are battling illness and create a future where children never have to struggle.
