Virginia Tech’s Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health program, now offering both M.S. & Ph.D. options, is a research-intensive, multidisciplinary program in the biomedical and health sciences that emphasizes the concept of “translational science” across multiple levels of inquiry.  It brings together students from the life, behavioral, physical, engineering, and computational sciences to consider today’s major health challenges. 

Through an innovative interdisciplinary curriculum that is carefully designed to balance breadth and depth, this program will prepare the next generation of scientific leaders to make and translate discoveries into preventions, diagnostics, treatments, cures and healthier behaviors.
