Translational and Regenerative Medicine

Born in 2014, the Division of Translational and Regenerative Medicine provides a collaborative facility to foster joint research activities and the exchange of ideas across multiple disciplines in order to drive medical breakthroughs. Our goal is to increase collaboration and cross-pollination of ideas from different disciplines to come up with new and innovative solutions for health care.

Human systems do not exist in isolation from one another but interact in elaborate and intricate ways. As knowledge of human systems increases, researchers, clinicians and students from various specialties and sub-specialties must work together across systems to come up with solutions to address the complexities of human disease. As is true in many fields, progress comes most quickly at the intersection of disparate fields of inquiry. 

In a bidirectional “bench-to-bedside” and “bedside-to-bench” approach, the division enhances the contribution of scientific discoveries to medicine by providing opportunities for multiple levels of inquiry and translating those discoveries into treatments and cures for delivery to patients. We tap into the University of Arizona’s strong scientific and medical communities to promote advances in knowledge and technology by bridging the gap between research and clinical applications.
