Mission Statement and Vision

BX ConferenceThe mission of the translational research program (TRP) is to foster interest in translational medicine among faculty, fellows, residents and medical students within the Department of Medicine. 

The vision of the program is to assist in the conduction of successful translational research projects for individuals at all academic levels, with the ultimate goal being to develop a sustainable TRP that engages the next generation of translational scientists.

The overarching goal of the TRP is to assist in the development of a core group of translational scientists resulting in an improvement in health care, the production of scholarly work (publications), and the generation of extramural funding.  To attain this vision, the TRP will act as a resource for interested investigators  including  students,  postgraduate  trainees  (MD  and  PhD),  attending  physicians,  basic scientists, statisticians, and others.
