Science & Medicine
From Bench to Trench: “Translational biomedical research”—bringing basic research discoveries to bear in clinical applications for human and animal health—is our top research priority and the area where we see the greatest potential for making contributions at the campus and national levels.
Real Life Laboratories
Just as translational biomedical research has been identified as our top research priority and our area of greatest potential for making contributions at the campus and national levels, so the teaching hospital and diagnostic laboratory are the most critical resources the college can offer to this initiative. Both units provide biomedical researchers with their only access on this campus to naturally occurring disease processes. We envision these real-life laboratories as the place of choice for researchers wishing to implement the practical health applications of biomaterials and other benchtop discoveries.
