Translational Medicine Workshop

On Saturday, June 11, 2022 the College of Medicine – Tucson will host the Translational Medicine Workshop from 7:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m at the Health Sciences Innovation Building (HSIB) 1670 E Drachman St, Tucson, AZ, 85724.

The Translational Medicine Workshop explores the application of basic science research results to the development of new understandings of disease mechanisms, diagnoses, and therapeutics.  Translational Medicine is the movement of ideas from the basic science laboratory to the clinical arena, using multidisciplinary, highly collaborative, ‘bench-to-bedside' approaches that ultimately benefit patients and the community at large.

Hosted by the College of Medicine – Tucson, this workshop is sponsored by a grant from the Arizona Biomedical Research Commission (ABRC). ABRC-funded events strive to deliver high-quality educational resources to support Arizona researchers to become leaders in biomedical research fields, successfully compete for external support, and translate research findings to address critical medical needs and improve health outcomes.
