TBRM Field & Career Opportunities

TBRM Graduate Student
Translational Biomedical Research Management (TBRM)

Translational biomedical research is a field of exceptional opportunity. Its territories of influence are scattered throughout the lifespan of any healthcare product – drug, medical device or mobile application – from its safety assessment to post-marketing surveillance, and final application fine-tuning. However, such catalytic conversion of knowledge into optimal and cost-effective human health benefits requires an environment with unprecedented logistical needs, including a workforce with a singular blend of talents and competencies.

Depending on the development segment you target, you will achieve your best performance in the translational biomedical research field by integrating skills not only from health and natural sciences but also from behavioral and social science backgrounds. You will gain advanced competency in understanding the current healthcare landscape and identifying alternatives to advance clinical sciences implementation.
