The Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) provides educational enrichment and an increased awareness of expanding opportunities in translational science, a discipline focused on moving biomedical discovery into application in the health care arena.
Translational science requires team-based interdisciplinary approaches to advance research-generated discoveries into clinical trials and facilitate adoption of best practices in a clinical and community setting.
Translational science investigators understand the principles involved in foundational research and how such studies relate to epidemiology, behavioral medicine and patient-oriented research.
The University of Iowa provides a variety of scholarships to eligible undergraduate students through the Iowa Scholarship Portal.
