MILWAUKEE – The Nicholas Family Foundation is hoping $1
million will bring new discoveries in cancer research and
accelerate the time it takes to get those to patients.
The $1 million gift from the foundation will help push new
research to patients at the new unit of the Froedtert & The
Medical College of Wisconsin Clinical Cancer Center in Wauwatosa.
The foundation is a product of Milwaukee investment executive
Ab Nicholas and will support early phase clinical trials.
The foundation’s latest gift contributes to a $5 million goal
established by the Froedtert Hospital Foundation. More than $4
million has been raised to date.
The Nicholas Family Foundation Translational Research Unit is
scheduled to open this week and will have five dedicated
research beds that could be expanded to 15.
