Marshfield Medical Research Foundation
Located in central Wisconsin, Marshfield Medical Research Foundation is one of America's largest non-university-based, private research organizations. As the research division of Marshfield Clinic, a multi-specialty group practice based in Marshfield, Wisconsin, Marshfield Medical Research Foundation is integral to the Clinic's mission to serve patients through accessible, high quality health care, research and education.
Foundation researchers regularly receive grants of hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars from federal agencies and private corporations and foundations. The Center for Medical Genetics recently received a $22 million federal grant, setting a Marshfield Medical Research Foundation record. The Foundation has more than 200 research projects in progress at any given time.
