Institute for Clinical and Translational Research
The NIH-CTSA funded University of Wisconsin Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) fosters an environment that transforms research into a continuum from investigation through discovery and to translation into real-life clinical and community practice, thereby linking even the most basic research to practical improvements in human health. ICTR is a partnership of five Schools and Colleges of UW-Madison, as well as the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation.
The ICTR Biostatistics Core is fully operated by faculty and research staff in the BMI Department, and Department faculty and staff play a major role in the ICTR Biomedical Informatics Core as well. In a parallel fashion to UWCCC Cores, these cores provide biostatistics and biomedical informatics expertise to members of the UW and Marshfield communities in the design, conduct, and analysis of laboratory, genomic, clinical, health outcomes, and epidemiological studies with a special emphasis on translational research.
