University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center

Madison, WI

The University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center became one of the first six comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute in 1973. UW Carbone is an integral part of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and UW Health and brings together more than 330 physicians and scientists from 50 departments and nine schools across the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to conduct research and translate laboratory discoveries into new patient treatments.

UW Carbone is a proud member of both the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the Big Ten Cancer Research Consortium.

Clinical trials at UW Carbone are a collaborative process. We have more than 30 years of experience conducting clinical trials in Madison, at our partner community hospitals, and regional cancer centers across Wisconsin. More than 250 clinical trials are available at UW Carbone and through such programs as the Wisconsin Oncology Network, a regional network established to allow community health centers from throughout Wisconsin and northern Illinois to enroll patients in select cancer clinical trials that are open at UW Carbone.

UW Carbone’s scientific mission is organized around six scientific programs, which foster dynamic interactions, generation of ideas, and new applications for cancer treatment and prevention. Programs encompass laboratory research, clinical research, population sciences, and advanced research training:

  • Cancer Genetic and Epigenetic Mechanisms
  • Cancer Prevention and Control
  • Developmental Therapeutics
  • Human Cancer Virology
  • Imaging and Radiation Sciences
  • Tumor Microenvironment

Outreach – helping the public clearly understand cancer’s impact on our daily lives – is a key component of UW Carbone. Programs, partnerships, and affiliations include the following, which focus on research, community outreach, clinical trials, and work with underserved populations:

  • Cancer Health Disparities Initiative
  • Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention
  • Pain and Policy Studies Group
  • Rural Cancer Disparities Project
  • Spirit of EAGLES
  • Wisconsin Cancer Council
  • Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Program
