Symposium Helps Redefine Translational Research

Hundreds of people attended the Translational Research Symposium on October 4 at the University of Michigan’s North Campus Research Complex. Speakers and attendees alike were engaged around the theme of “Found in Translation,” and were enthusiastic about the wide range of topics. An afternoon performance by students from the Department of Musical Theatre provided a unique and moving interpretation of translation.

Another highlight was keynote speaker Christopher P. Austin, MD, Director, National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), who presented “Catalyzing Translational Innovation.”

The event was sponsored by MICHR and the U-M Office of Research (UMOR).
