The Blood Research Institute, with eight core laboratories serving 21 investigator-level scientists, is a state-of-the-art research facility located on the campus of the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center, along with the Medical College of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital, and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

Blood Research Institute scientists continue a tradition of scientific discovery that began with the inception of the Blood Center of Wisconsin in 1947. This first phase of the project is a lab and office expansion of approximately 35,000 sf, and the remodeling of the existing Blood Donor Center and conferencing area. A two-story laboratory block contains open lab and core facilities on one floor and shell space on the other. The eight core labs are biophysics, flow cytometry, histology, hybridoma, imaging, molecular biology, protein chemistry, and viral vector. An office block, which also contains the conference/education center, was developed to create an interactive space for researchers. The design builds on the strengths of the existing office space and serves as the new main entry point to the facility.

Future phases could include a laboratory expansion and a vivarium.
