New master's program to foster biomedical and clinical research ยป

Sherrie Kaplan
UCI's School of Medicine has kicked off an innovative master's degree program in biomedical & translational science that will prepare emerging doctors and scientists to turn basic research findings into new patient treatments. The program - aimed at junior physician faculty members, medical school fellows, residents, fourth-year students and others with a solid foundation in basic science - is one of the first of its kind in the nation and will help develop the skills needed to conduct, interpret, evaluate and apply clinical research. "The recent emphasis by the federal government to speed biomedical discoveries into the healthcare marketplace makes this program particularly timely," said Sherrie Kaplan (pictured), program director and executive co-director of UCI's Health Policy Research Institute. "Our curriculum has been developed to meet the increasingly sophisticated demands of the clinical research environment."
