Certificate Program in Translational Research

This innovative and rigorous program gives PhD students, Emory postdocs and junior faculty members the expertise and experience to translate fundamental biomedical scientific discoveries into treatments that will benefit human health.

About the program

The Certificate Program in Translational Research is multidisciplinary program of the Emory Laney Graduate School for PhD students, Emory postdocs and faculty members who seek to conduct research at the interface between basic science and clinical medicine.

Despite the explosive growth in biomedical knowledge, it has been increasingly difficult to translate this knowledge and discovery into applications for the treatment of disease and to benefit human health.  Thus, there is an urgent need to facilitate the translation of biomedical knowledge to improve human health and to address the gap between biology and medicine.  This certificate program will enhance and transform translational research training for PhD students at Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Georgia, and Morehouse School of Medicine.

The Certificate in Translational Research is part of the Georgia Clinical and Translational Science Alliance, a partnership between Emory University, the Morehouse School of Medicine, the University of Georgia, and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
