The Versiti Blood Research Institute (VBRI), located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is an academic center focused on innovative research in hematology. VBRI science spans the entire research spectrum, from basic mechanistic inquiry to clinical-translational and population-based research. The VBRI currently houses 25 principal investigators in five focuses areas - Hematopoiesis, Glycobiology, Thrombosis and Hemostasis, Transfusion Medicine & Cellular Therapy, and Immunohematology. The VBRI has started a significant expansion of its research capacity, adding 18 new PIs over a 5–7-year period. Designs for a new 60,000 – 80,000 ft2 research building are under development, with completion anticipated for early 2025.
We seek to enhance our research program in hematopoiesis, both normal and malignant. Areas of interest include but are not limited to clonal hematopoiesis, hematopoietic stem cell biology, metabolism, glycobiology, systems biology and mathematical modelling, lymphoid and myeloid malignancies, and the hematopoietic niche. Investigators at all academic ranks with a research program focused on blood cell development are encouraged to apply. These positions provide attractive start-up packages and outstanding opportunities for collaboration with basic, translational, and clinical investigators. Applicants with the appropriate qualifications will be considered for leadership positions, including the programmatic leadership over the VBRI hematopoiesis program. Candidates from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. The VBRI is located on the same campus as the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and Froedtert Hospital, which facilitates collaboration, provides additional research breadth and enables access to graduate students. VBRI faculty typically hold an appointment at MCW, including clinical departments, to facilitate translational research.
Entirely focused on hematology, the VBRI provides a unique environment for hematology research, reflected by its long record of scientific excellence and innovation since its founding over seventy years ago. Starting with the recent recruitment of Dr. Michael Deininger, an international leader in myeloproliferative neoplasms, the VBRI is strategically strengthening its programs in malignant hematology and hematopoiesis to promote both mechanistic and clinical-translational science. We are committed to impactful, rigorous science that can change lives.
