Grove Gift Launches Translational Medicine Program at UCSF & UC Berkeley
Date:5/20/2010

y aspects of healthcare, from developing new ways to deliver therapeutics, to designing medical devices, equipment and consumer-related healthcare products that can improve patients’ self-reliance.

The program will begin this fall with roughly a dozen students and initially will be offered through the existing master’s program in the UCSF-UC Berkeley Joint Graduate Group in Bioengineering, which is a cooperative venture between the UC Berkeley Department of Bioengineering and the UCSF Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences.

It will be patterned on a model of a master’s of business administration, teaching the critical-thinking skills needed to maneuver through the many obstacles along the route from laboratory bench to patient bedside, and will draw a student body from a diverse array of backgrounds, including engineering, bioengineering, business, medicine, basic research and industry. The program will complement those backgrounds, while giving students hands-on experience in multidisciplinary projects to tackle a specific obstacle in the field.

The program is unique in both offering a professional degree and in integrating the perspectives of a broad field of backgrounds, Johnston said. As this grows to an expected 50 students per year over the next six years, the graduate group intends to request approval from the UC Office of the President to make it an independent master’s degree program, rather than a subset of bioengineering.

UCSF is a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide through advanced biomedical research, graduate-level education in the life sciences and health professions, and excellence in patient care. For further information, visit www.ucsf.edu.

UC Berkeley was established in 1868 as the first of today’s 10-campus University of California system. Today ranki
