Translational Research and Applied Medicine (TRAM) Program in the Department of Medicine


About Us

TRAMThe Translational Research and Applied Medicine (TRAM) Program is designed to focus on removing barriers and communication gaps between scientists and the clinicians within the Department of Medicine.

Our initiatives include research facilities and pilot grants that support translational projects of faculty, clinical fellows and students. The program also fosters education by organizing a series of seminars, symposia and an annual retreat.

Our program is interested in all phases of translational research, as well as both directions of translation (from bench to bedside and from bedside to bench) and also in the extension to the population level.

Bench to Bedside approach

TRAM was established to provide an infrastructure to rapidly translate novel genomic/proteomic, nanoscale and imaging research discoveries from the laboratory to the clinic and facilitate bench-to-bedside development of cellular therapies.

Our program helps to support diverse translational research projects that will result in innovative approaches to the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of human cancers, heart disease, HIV infection, myelofibrosis, systemic sclerosis, graft-versus-host, as well as other human diseases.
