The Translational Medicine course, offered by Utrecht University, encompasses the continuum from identifying an idea to its development into new therapies for human diseases.


The Translational Medicine course, offered by Utrecht University, will help you to develop critical thinking skills to approach the challenges in translational medicine. You will also improve your communication skills – in particular, those required for presenting complex scientific ideas to a broad spectrum of people. You will learn to analyze effective manuscript preparation and begin to apply the concepts to your own work. In addition, you will have the opportunity to analyze the business, scientific and regulatory aspects of translational medicine

During the course, we will examine case studies and help you develop creative problem-solving strategies and novel skills to build new kinds of teams. The skills garnered from this course will help you and your teams to address the challenges facing drug development today, and to bridge the divide between concept and patient.

Offered by the Eureka Institute for Translational Medicine, this online health course comprises a preparatory online element , followed by an intensive 7-day certificate program in Siracusa, Sicily. You can prepare for the latter by participating in the online discussion forum. Here, you can explain your ideas and visions on translational medicine and give feedback to your peers about theirs. This is a great way to get to know each other and each other’s ideas on translational medicine prior to taking part in the certificate program itself.


Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive a recognized certificate from the Eureka Institute for Translational Medicine.
