Sonderegger Research Center

The Sonderegger Research Center (SRC), established in 1985, was the first center in the nation to feature health services research in pharmacy and remains a national leader. SRC is an officially recognized University of Wisconsin – Madison research center. SRC research contributes to improved health by addressing:

  • Organization and financing of health care
  • Policy and public health
  • Quality and promotion of best practice in pharmacy
  • Patient behavior and outcomes

The SRC’s core interdisciplinary faculty facilitates pharmacy practice enhancement and research through developing and collaborating with pharmacy partnerships. The SRC brings resources to help pharmacies achieve their agenda of serving the people of Wisconsin to their full capacity. The Wisconsin Idea is embodied in these and other SRC activities.

SRC serves as a research resource for the UW Institute for Clinical Translational Research-Community Academic Partnerships (ICTR-CAP), funded from a 2007 NCRR/NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award. SRC joins ICTR in its goal to transform research into a continuum translating findings into practice in order to improve health.

In 2007, the NIH National Center for Research Resources granted UW-Madison a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) to develop infrastructure to support interdisciplinary research among investigators and scholars/trainees at UW and Marshfield Clinic and to create an environment that transforms research into a continuum from investigation through discovery and to translation into real-life community practice. The SRC is a core research resource within the Community Academic Partnership (CAP) component of ICTR.
