Dr. Gloria Sarto is a trail blazer in women’s health whose focus has intuitively been on health equity. Dr. Sarto has dedicated her long and esteemed professional career not only on helping ensure all women have access to the health care they need and deserve, but as importantly, that medical research equally include women. Thanks in large part to the work of Dr. Sarto the federal government in 1990 mandated that medical research include female subjects equal to male. 1990 is not that long ago.
This $1.5 million endowed chair will allow us to recruit and retain the top physician or researcher whose work is focused on advancing women’s health through health equity research. We are a leader in this area because Dr. Sarto has called the University of Wisconsin-Madison her academic home for most of her life. Donate now

This fund was established by a relative of a grateful patient and supports research in the area of gynecologic cancers. The department’s division of Gynecology Oncology conducts basic clinical and translational research. Incorporating a translational model helps to more quickly adapt basic scientific results to real life health care at the bedside. This in turn directly affects our patients’ health and sense of well-being. Contributions to this fund significantly help advance cutting-edge research to find new ways to detect the cancer earlier, as well as improve the outcomes and quality of life for women and their families who face these cancers.

The Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology Program at the University of Wisconsin is a broad base, interdepartmental degree-granting program designed to provide training at the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral level. This interdisciplinary research is at the forefront of endocrinology and reproductive physiology. The need for a greater understanding of reproductive and gestational health issues is extremely high. A woman’s ability to plan her pregnancies is a major factor in maternal, infant and child health, and aids in the eradication of poverty. Additionally, studies in reproduction can provide solutions to infertility. Healthy full-term pregnancies not only predict health outcomes for mom and baby, recent research indicates they are important indicators for long-term health throughout life and therefore of great benefit to society.
These funds are used to enhance the experience of the students, provide academic awards for program related activities, among other important research activities. Donate now
This fund was established by the Johnsons to advance ovarian cancer research specifically. There is much progress in prolonging the lives of women who face an ovarian cancer diagnosis, but there is much work to be done in finding ways for early detection, a cure, and greatly improving the quality of life for women and their families while they deal with their treatments. UW-Madison has a team of outstanding researchers dedicated to improving the outcomes of an ovarian cancer diagnosis. Donate now
