The Program of Applied Translational Research (PATR) is dedicated to the process of applying discoveries generated in the laboratory and in preclinical experiments, to the development of clinical studies, and to the design of clinical trials. As a critical component of this mission, the Program also seeks to conduct translational research to advance the mechanistic understanding of novel biomarkers to enhance their clinical utility in complex diseases. Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of talented physicians and scientists committed to patient-oriented research and developing solutions in clinical medicine and disease management in the community. The Program aims to combine the creativity, commitment, experience, and skills of our physician-scientists to improve the care of our patients.
Fellows involved in our program frequently pursue additional degrees as part of their training. We have had fellows earn PhD programs through the Investigative Medicine Program, or pursue training in epidemiology by obtaining a Master of Science degree through the Yale School of Public Health.
