The Carbone Cancer Center is a consortium of over 300 faculty based at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, focused on cutting-edge cancer treatment and research. Our members span 45 departments and 11 schools within UW-Madison, with research funding totaling over
$130 million in 2016.
All individuals applying for UWCCC membership must have an active faculty appointment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Members are selected for their active participation in cancer research, peer-reviewed research support and personal commitment to involvement in the activities of the UWCCC, specifically their commitment to supporting collaborative research within the Cancer Center. Many members have published peer reviewed cancer-related research and participate in UWCCC clinical research groups, known as Disease-Oriented Teams (DOTs). Others lead cancer clinical trials or contribute to the overall mission of the UWCCC in areas of patient care and/or community outreach.
