Governor Doyle announces historic genomic research collaboration
Date:10/10/2008

MARSHFIELD, MILWAUKEE, MADISON Governor Jim Doyle today announced a historic collaboration between four Wisconsin research institutions to advance personalized health care leading to health care that proactively addresses diseases. The Wisconsin Genomics Initiative is a collaborative research effort among the Marshfield Clinic, Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (UWSMPH) and UW-Milwaukee (UWM).

Wisconsin is a leader in genomic research and personalized health care, and the Wisconsin Genomics Initiative will solidify the state's national and international leadership position.

"With our combined knowledge, expertise and technologies here in Wisconsin, we have an incredible opportunity to become a worldwide leader in personalized health care," Governor Doyle said. "By aligning the intellectual capital of four major research institutions, we will meet an important scientific and public health need that could otherwise not be met, and which cannot be accomplished anywhere else but Wisconsin."

"Medical experts have testified before my committee that the future of medicine is that we will be able to look at individuals and know what diseases they are likely to get, how best to treat them, and what we can do to keep them from getting sick in the first place," said Representative Dave Obey. "The Wisconsin Genomics Initiative is all about getting us to that future. I'm proud that once again Wisconsin is helping to lead the nation in medical research, just like we are with stem cell research."

This public-private partnership is the result of a challenge issued by Governor Doyle in 2006 at the groundbreaking for Marshfield Clinic's Laird Center for Medical Research expansion. He challenged the four institutions to combine and leverage resources to create a Wisconsin Medical Research Triangle.

The Wisconsin Genomics Initiative is the first project stemming from that
