This program focuses on multidisciplinary research skills needed to carry out bench to bedside translational research. The primary objective of the program is to train individuals to combine basic science knowledge with clinical knowledge and population research in an academic program that awards a credential indicating expertise in research study design, biostatistics, translational research technologies, experimental therapeutics, and pathophysiology. Individuals eligible for this program must have a B.S. degree with a concentration in a science or math related discipline. The core courses for the M.S. in Translational Research are: Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Health Informatics, Pathophysiology, Translational Research Methods, Experimental Therapeutics, PC for SAS, and Translational Research Seminars. Course work is completed in one year of full-time study with a mentored research project that, in most cases, will extend beyond the completion of the course work.
Applicants must submit the following:
- Online Application
- Statement of Purpose
- Official transcripts from all previous college and graduate programs.
