Translational Research

The Department believes that actively designing and implementing a Translational Research program will lead to the following benefits while meeting the goal of helping humanity lead better lives:

* Provide a road map to accelerate commercialization of university-based life science innovation
* Help develop university biomedical innovations to a critical endpoint
* Attract follow-on funding from investors/industry
* Create high paying jobs and increase the biomedical industry infrastructure in the region

Two programs are presently being implemented under the Department of Bioengineering's leadership: 

Coulter Translational Research Partners II Program
Center for Medical Innovation
