Asian Scientist Magazine profiles CCS Translational Research

Asian Scientist Magazine has profiled the Monash Translational Research programs for its readership in all corners of Asia, including China, India, South Korea, Japan and Australia.

“Our motivation for establishing the program centered on three core tenets: the increasing importance of translational research at both government and community level; the lack of specific training in translational research for our post-graduate students; and the ever shrinking career opportunities offered by government-based fellowship schemes in Australia,” said Professor Stephen M. Jane, head, of the Central Clinical School at Monash University.

“The courses have been specifically designed to meet an emerging market need for scientists and clinicians to be trained in the development of basic research findings through commercial­ization and regulation of therapeutic products in multi­disciplinary environments.”
