Welcome to Gundersen Medical Foundation's Medical Research site. Our research program is clinically oriented science that seeks evidence-based, reproducible answers to important questions that pertain to the health of the citizens of the tri-state area. This research helps direct Gundersen's medical staff to provide patients with the most up-to-date advancements in medical care.

When new medications, medical treatments, medical devices, or diagnostic tests are developed, researchers collect information about them by conducting clinical research trials or “studies.” As a member of the Wisconsin Network for Health Research (WiNHR), Gundersen Medical Foundation collaborates with its research partners to improve population health in Wisconsin and beyond. Whether you are a patient who agrees to take part in a clinical research trial or you contribute through charitable giving, your support is vital to Gundersen Medical Foundation's research mission. The health professionals at Gundersen know the importance of funding research initiatives and providing research assistance to our healthcare experts.
