The Versiti Blood Research Institute’s planned expansion in Wauwatosa could bring more than 100 new jobs to the area.
That’s according to Chris Miskel, president and CEO of Versiti. In a recent interview, he discussed the research institute’s plans for adding 65,000 square feet of new space to its Wisconsin footprint and recruiting more blood scientists to the state.
He said the institute currently employs about 27 researchers, and the expansion would make space for up to 20 more scientists. The institute’s existing 90,000-square-foot facility is getting close to capacity, he explained.
