¿Qué aprenderé?

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.

Through a combination of TBMH core and focus area-specific coursework, students will be trained to go deep at advanced levels in a particular area (just as in classic disciplines), but also to have the skills, confidence and intellectual breadth to identify today’s pressing health issues, and develop them in the framework and context of greater needs. This includes recognizing the likelihood of the adoption and application of translational discoveries, their cost, delivery, and related policy issues.

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. They will learn about and discuss contemporary and emerging pathogens (viral, bacterial, and other), the human immune response, the development and delivery of novel diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as the social, psychological, and economic consequences of infectious and immune diseases. Students will develop a professional level of expertise in immunity and infectious disease, and learn to apply this knowledge to carry out innovative and interdisciplinary research to advance disease prevention, diagnostics and treatment.
