Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

The TBMH program has been designed to help address a national need for accelerating the pace of translation of biomedical discoveries into diagnostics, treatments, and cures, as well as their effective implementation. Major national organizations, such as the National Institutes of Health, Association of American Medical Colleges, and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, have called for new approaches to train biomedical and health scientists to achieve this goal, recognizing that today’s researchers must utilize interdisciplinary approaches, communicate across levels of inquiry, and be prepared for the diverse careers that drive today’s biomedical research enterprise. Graduates of the TBMH program will be well prepared to take on these challenges and become tomorrow’s scientific leaders.

Students may specialize in in one of six focus areas:

Cancer

Students entering this focus area will have an interest in eliminating the suffering and death due to cancer, through research in cancer prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment interventions.

Development, Aging, and Repair

Students entering this focus area will have an interest in promoting a better quality of life through research into the biomedical and behavioral components of development and aging, as well as cutting edge technologies and methodologies for improving health in cases of developmental or age-related disorders and injuries. This focus area will emphasize processes critical to human biology and well-being across the lifespan.

Health Implementation Science

Health Implementation Science is an emerging field strongly endorsed by the National Institutes of Health, The Institute of Medicine, and The National Research Council. It is located at far end of the clinical translational continuum -- focused on scientific inquiry about the “uptake” of major medical and health discoveries by practitioners and policymakers and their impact on the well-being of individuals and communities.

Immunity and Infectious Disease

Students entering this focus area will have an interest in performing research towards the understanding, prevention, and treatment of infectious and immunologic diseases. Track-specific coursework will take an integrative, translational approach to all aspects of infectious disease.

Metabolic and Cardiovascular Science

Students entering this focus area will have an interest in improving health and quality of life through research on cardiovascular and metabolic health. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of metabolic and cardiovascular physiology, and their interrelationship. This will include topics such as principle energy systems, appetite and energy expenditure, and cardiovascular function and regulation.

Neuroscience

Students entering this focus area will have an interest in reducing the burden of neurological and mental health disorders through research. Students will develop an understanding of the normal biological processes that undergird healthy brain and cognitive function, the causes and mechanisms of dysregulation that lead to dysfunction, and current and evolving approaches to therapy and novel therapeutic development.
