Translational medicine is the conversion of scientific discovery into health improvement, bringing the “bench to bedside” by innovating new cures, integrating these techniques into practice, and inspiring future doctors and scientists to always work towards patient centered clinical applications. This highly interdisciplinary field brings together all aspects of science, medicine, and engineering.
Translational Medicine Day (TMD) will bridge the discussions occurring in San Diego’s vibrant and expansive research community with the future of cutting edge healthcare. TMD will gather students, professors, and industry together to enhance the heart of this discussion.
Translational Medicine Day will include:
Keynote Speaker, Dr. Perry Nisen, CEO of the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute
Engaging speakers from industry and academia that demonstrate the potential of an interdisciplinary approach to medicine.
Interactive workshops that explore various disciplines in medicine. MD/PhD panels that share insights on medicine and the transition from research to active practice.
A tour of the Center for the Future of Surgery featuring cutting edge technology.
