According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (2001), "up to two decades may pass before the findings of original research becomes part of routine clinical practice." This delay in translational research and commercialization contributes to soaring health care costs and prolonged human suffering. This paper will describe the organizational model, funding plan and initial nursing research collaborations of the Wisconsin Institute for Biomedical & Health Technologies (WIBHT), an innovative, interdisciplinary, collaborative research institute dedicated to discovery and translational health research. Established with $1M annual recurring funding and an additional $1M of start-up funding, WIBHT was the winner of a competitive campus-wide request for proposal in spring, 2005. Structured as a partnership among five academic schools and colleges of an urban research university including the Colleges of Engineering, Health Sciences, Nursing, the School of Business and the Department of Physics, WIBHT is generating a culture of research, education, commercialization and entrepreneurship that facilitates basic and translational research from "laboratory to bedside." Partners include a large private medical college, the largest health care system in the state, and major industry partners. Contributions from these partners added investments to nearly $15M. The three areas of WIBHT research foci include: Biomedical Imaging & Technology, Health information and systems management and the center for health applications and outcomes.

Nurse scientists were key to the conceptual development of WIBHT and have established the first funded collaborative within the WIBHT framework focused on nursing informatics. This paper will present one exemplar of an interdisciplinary informatics research project developed with nursing leadership, lessons learned in the collaboration process, and plans for expansion of the nursing informatics research plan within WIBHT.
