OUR MISSION
AND FUNDING

WBCS, Inc. was founded in 1998 as an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Its mission is to support early-stage breast cancer and prostate cancer research at The Medical College of Wisconsin.

Since its founding, WBCS has donated over $5.1 million to MCW for promising research and to endow the recently established WBCS Professor of Breast Cancer Research. Promising breast cancer and prostate cancer research by past WBCS grant recipients has led to over $37.6 million in additional competitive extramural research grants to MCW by the National Institutes of Health and other foundations.

Your participation in our Showhouse For a Cure ensures continuing support of the Medical College’s Cancer Center research efforts.

WBCS Endowed Professorship/Laboratory for Breast Cancer Research

In 2011, WBCS, Inc. established The WBCS Professor of Breast Cancer Research and named The WBCS Laboratory for Breast Cancer Research at The Medical College of Wisconsin. Recruitment for the WBCS Professor will bring a nationally acclaimed research scientist to the College as part of a plan by MCW Cancer Center Director Ming You, MD, PhD, to build on an already outstanding Breast Care Center at the College.

Initial funding for both the professorship and the laboratory came from WBCS funds beginning in 1999. It grew from funds donated over and above annual research awards for early-stage breast cancer and prostate cancer research. The endowed professorship provides a new opportunity for WBCS to advance the frontiers of breast cancer research and ultimately impact research protocols and best practice improvements that have a global reach. WBCS will continue to fund promising early-stage research protocols up to $300,000 annually, in addition to adding support for the professorship and laboratory commitments.

Since its inception, WBCS has donated more than $5.1 million to the Medical College. Last year's donation totalled $350,000. An additional $37.6 million has been awarded to researchers supported by WBCS as a direct result of the venture capital received from the organization.

WBCS is a grassroots, all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization that solicits corporate and individual support for major gifts and events it holds to raise research dollars. WBCS invites your support of our mission. For more information or to donate to this initiative, please call 414-297-9152, email showhouse@mcw.edu or write to us at P.O.
