Translational Biomedical Science

PhD TBS Front Page

The University of Rochester is pleased to offer an innovative Ph.D. program in Translational Biomedical Science, one of the first of its kind. The goal of the program is to prepare individuals for academic and clinical careers relating to the translation of basic biomedical research into clinical strategies to improve health. Through feedback from clinical situations, program graduates will also target and stimulate basic scientific research in pursuit of causes of disease and optimal therapies to prevent and cure disease.

To improve human health, fundamental scientific discoveries and critically evaluated clinical observations must be translated into practical clinical applications. Important discoveries from “the bench” of basic biomedical research performed at the molecular or cellular level must progress to the clinical level, to the “bedside.” Key observations at the bedside stimulate scientists to examine pathophysiologic phenomena and to devise new approaches to elucidate disease mechanisms and therapeutic approaches based on such demonstrated causes. The University of Rochester’s tradition of excellence in education and research extends to its mission to improve health through the School of Medicine and Dentistry.
