Translational Medicine Online

Translational medicine encompasses the continuum from identifying an idea to its development into new therapies for human diseases. By enabling people to develop research through this continuum, it is possible to translate critical scientific insights into tangible benefits for patients.

This course will help you to develop critical thinking skills to approach the challenges in translational medicine. You will also improve your communication skills – in particular, those required for presenting complex scientific ideas to a broad spectrum of people. You will learn to analyze effective manuscript preparation and begin to apply the concepts to your own work. In addition, you will have the opportunity to analyze the business, scientific and regulatory aspects of translational medicine

During the course, we will examine case studies and help you develop creative problem-solving strategies and novel skills to build new kinds of teams. The skills garnered from this course will help you and your teams to address the challenges facing drug development today, and to bridge the divide between concept and patient.

This course is one of the online medical courses offered at the Utrecht Summer School. Please visit the website of Utrecht Summer School for more information.
