TRAM, Translational Research and Applied Medicine Program


Spectrum support for Clinical Research is divided into four stages, the first of which is DESIGNING YOUR STUDY.

This stage includes tasks and activities that occur early in the design & development of a study, such as:

  • biostatistics consultations
  • informatics consultations
  • bioethics consultations
  • identifying co-investigators and collaborators
  • exploring funding opportunities

TRAM, the Translational Research and Applied Medicine Program, is dedicated to fostering interactions between physicians and scientists that translate bench-side discoveries into the clinic.

It was established to provide an infrastructure to rapidly translate novel genomic/proteomic, nanoscale and imaging research discoveries from the laboratory to the clinic and facilitate bench-to-bedside development of cellular therapies.

TRAM helps to support diverse translational research projects that will result in innovative approaches to the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of human cancers, heart disease, HIV infection, myelofibrosis, systemic sclerosis, graft-versus-host, as well as other human diseases.
