Translational Research and Applied Medicine (TRAM) Program in the Department of Medicine

DEAN FELSHER, TRAM Director

JOANNA LILIENTAL, TRAM Associate Director

  • TRAM was established by Dean Felsher MD, PhD (Professor of Medicine and Pathology) 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.
  • Our initiatives include research facilities and pilot grants that support translational projects of faculty, clinical fellows and students.  The program also fosters education by organizing a series of seminars, workshops and an annual retreat.
  • TRAM program is interested in all phases of translational research, as well as both directions of translation (from bedside to bench and from bench to bedside) and also in the extension to the population level.
 

 

TRAM'S MISSION STATEMENT

 

  • To serve a vital function in the Stanford Department of Medicine in the training of medical students, residents, and clinical fellows in performing translational research.
  • To facilitate basic, clinical and translational research by bringing together clinicians and scientists in new applied medicine projects.
  • To provide both structure and resources to encourage scientific interactions among different Department of Medicine Divisions, as well as collaborative research among clinical and research faculty, students, residents, and fellows.
