About Translational Biosciences

The Translational Biosciences PhD program represents a new paradigm for graduate training in biomedical research. This program will span the entire breadth of the biomedical research spectrum, from basic science discoveries to improved clinical outcomes and population health.  Students in the program will acquire a deep knowledge base of a chosen discipline and the ability to communicate and collaborate across disciplines.  Grounded in research programs supported by the NextGen Precision Health Institute and the School of Medicine, the PhD trainees will be actively contributing to the UM System-wide effort to translate ground-breaking biomedical research into life-changing reality for people in Missouri and globally. Completion of this program provides state-of-the-art research training to young biomedical scientists at the beginning of their scientific careers.
