Through research and creative work in a wide variety of disciplines ranging from science and engineering to the humanities and public policy, universities worldwide are constantly seeking a better understanding of the world around us.
As a public university, the University of Michigan has a special obligation to ensure that society benefits from the knowledge, insights and other products that arise. The translation of intellectual work to public benefit can take many paths, including undergraduate and graduate education, papers and books, clinical practice, technology licensing and works of art.
Through these processes, universities serve as the foundation of our nation’s economic vitality and quality of life.
In an effort to help enhance and accelerate the transfer of U-M research and creative work, the University of Michigan Office of Research (UMOR) launched a portal that includes important information related to translational research.
With a focus on bridging gaps between scholarship and application, the portal features a directory for the Translational Research Council, results of a campus-wide translational research survey and information related to support services and programs that aim to help expedite access to information and resources.
