We’re delighted to announce the release of the 2016 Research Report featuring the many research activities of Wisconsin’s Flagship College of Health Sciences.

Find out about our rich and diverse academic environment, top-notch research facilities and award-winning nationally- and internationally-recognized faculty and staff. See how together we are improving the health and well-being of our communities.

Featured in 2016 Research Report is a group of faculty members who are well known for their ground-breaking research and community outreach. Also included are the many accomplishments of our students who are beginning important work in their chosen fields.

The 2016 Research Report vividly shows how the College is actively pursuing wide-ranging research innovations. Some of these highlights are:

  • The College is now part of a nationally-recognized, top-tier Research 1 (R1) university. This means that we are in the ranks of top doctoral research universities in the country. This is something to be proud of and is inspiration to accomplish even more.
  • A record $3.31 million in research funding was received through grants from such prestigious research institutions as the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
  • There are more than 80 faculty and staff working in 30-plus research and instructional laboratories and seven centers, conducting a broad range of research, from work in illness and disease prevention to rehabilitation and assistive technology.
  • There are two important community-based sites where clinical services, education and training take place. We recognize an obligation for our research to have an impact on the wider community.

We hope that 2016 Research Report will open your eyes to all the exciting work here at the College. We welcome your involvement, whether as an alumnus, a community partner, a donor or a research associate. Join us as we look to the future, and together make the world a healthier place.
