The Wistar Institute

The Wistar Institute is one of Philadelphia’s first independent nonprofit biomedical research institutes. It specialises in cancer, immunology, infectious diseases, and vaccine development. The Institute, founded in 1892 and opened in 1894, began to carry out Isaac Wistar’s vision of a centre for “new and original research” in the biological and medical sciences.

The Wistar Institute is Philadelphia’s first independent nonprofit biomedical research institute. In recognition of its longstanding cancer treatment, it has been designated a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center. 

The Institute is dedicated to advancing research from bench to bedside through excellent science and unique approaches to collaboration among scientists, academics, and industry partners. Wistar is committed to making the most recent discoveries in the areas listed above to improve human health in the future.

The Wistar Institute is an autonomous, nonprofit biomedical science research facility with two primary focus areas: cancer research and vaccine and immunotherapy development. It provides various training programs for high school students, undergraduates, and postgraduates. To achieve maximum performance, the Institute actively recruits interns and apprentices while cultivating an all-around team research culture.

Caspar Wistar, M.D., a distinguished physician from Philadelphia, named the Wistar Institute the country’s first independent biomedical research institution. Wistar, with a rich tradition of outstanding research, shaped modern medicine and influenced the history of human health.

Since then, Wistar Institute has been actively continuing the legacy of nonprofit biomedical research by making lifesaving contributions and following brave research approaches to life science discoveries.
