Research Development


Research to Market Innovation

Specialized resources, mentorship, and opportunities are required to translate high-impact faculty research into commercialized products and enterprises. Entrepreneurship can amplify the impact of basic science discovery and allow the realization of the social and commercial benefits of faculty research.


Translational Research in STEM

Translational research is scientific research that helps to translate the findings from basic science into practical applications that enhance human experience through such outcomes as increased health and well-being, improvements in the built environment, or mitigation of the impact of human populations on natural resources. For example, in medicine it is used to “translate” findings in basic research quickly into medical therapies.
