Discover the beauty and complexity of life as seen through today’s advanced

The Wistar Institute

The Wistar Institute is the nation’s first independent institution devoted to medical research and training.  The Institute has evolved from its beginnings as an anatomical teaching museum to its present-day status as an international leader in basic biomedical research.


In 1972, The Wistar Institute was designated a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center in basic research—a distinction it holds to this day.

Wistar discoveries have led to the development of vaccines for rabies, rubella, and rotavirus, the identification of genes associated with breast, lung, and prostate cancer, and the development of monoclonal antibodies and other significant research technologies and tools.
