FIU Center for Translational Science is an important part of FIU’s focus on training the next generation of scientists and doctors through a robust focus on training doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows.
FIU-CTS faculty, staff, fellows and students are representative of the global research community as well as the South Florida Community. FIU has a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We have found that research, at its best, thrives utilizing a global collaborative approach, which includes new ideas and thought processes by a diverse group of individuals, working toward a common goal to understand and develop potential therapeutics for human diseases.
Researchers at the Center for Translational Science are studying the following broad research and discovery themes:
* Lung vascular & airway disease * Brain injury & aging
* Environment medicine * Inflammation, infection, & immunity
* Bioinformatics * Mitochondria & metabolism
Research activity at the Center for Translational Science complements endeavors from FIU’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine
and Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work, both integral components of FIU’s robust research program.
