Laird Center for Medical Research
Tour the Laird Center
The new lobby just outside of the Robert F. Froehkle Conference Center has been named by the children of famed architect and builder Marshall Erdman, along with Marshall Erdman and Associates of Madison, Wisconsin. The lobby will serve as a gathering space for Marshfield Clinic programs, receptions and dinners.
Laird Legacy Display
Names of all contributors to the expansion of the Laird Center for Medical Research appear on the display located just inside the Erdman Lobby. The center panels feature tributes to Melvin R. Laird by noted state and national leaders. Contributors’ names are printed on glass panels featuring the four seasons of life in central Wisconsin. Panels on each end of the display recognize donors who have contributed at least $50,000 or more to the project, and feature personal statements from these donors on what motivated them to pledge their support with a major gift. To date, more than 900 contributors have given to the current campaign. Contributions continue to be accepted for this project and are always appreciated for medical research, education and patient services.
This building would not have been possible without grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to support construction costs associated with the research and translational research portions of the building and the purchase of scientific equipment.
