This program includes a Master of Science degree in Clinical Research (i.e. the Clinical Research track in MS-PREV) and a Certificate in Clinical Research. In addition, there is a MS and PhD in Molecular Medicine with a track in Translational Research within the Graduate Program in Life Sciences.
Applicants must be admitted to a graduate major program before applying to the Clinical and Translational Sciences Program. Once admitted, students may apply to the Clinical and Translational Sciences Dual-Title PhD Program before arriving at Penn State, any time prior to taking the qualifying exam, or shortly thereafter.
Clinical and Translational Science (Ph.D.) Learn to direct the discovery of scientific knowledge to physicians who will incorporate those discoveries into practice. Research needs to move from the lab bench to the patient's bedside for it to be useful to physicians and patients.
Science graduates undertook PhD studies in clinical and translational research as MMI Scholars in the MMI partner institutions UCC, UCD, NUI Galway and TCD. Unique features of this 4-year structured PhD programme included the strong involvement of industry partners in governance, taught courses.
Research Area. Surgery. Borel-Rinkes, I.H.M. The responses in the human body to surgery that stimulate tumor growth or the formation of metastases. Hillegersberg van, Richard.

Clinical research is the process of using research studies to answer specific health questions. This may involve observational research, which studies health issues in large groups of people, or clinical trials, which seek to answer specific questions about drugs, devices, treatments, diet, physical activity, or other interventions to determine if they are safe and effective.
Program Description. The PhD program in Clinical Translational Sciences (CTS) at the University of Arizona (UA) welcomes applications from post-baccalaureate students who have earned a bachelor's or master's degree in a biological or health science discipline and from postgraduate students holding a terminal health sciences degree (e.g., MD, PharmD, DrPH, DNP, etc.).
Translational Research. Translation: The process of turning observations in the laboratory, clinic and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public. Translational Science: The field of investigation focused on understanding the scientific and operational principles underlying each step of the translational process.
