What is the TRP?

Founded in 2008, the Translational Research Program (TRP) aims to stimulate and facilitate the development of preclinical and, ultimately, human translational trials seeking to improve the care of children with serious diseases. The TRP provides support for faculty-initiated research projects along with infrastructure to get these projects done in a fast and efficient manner. The mission of the TRP is to stimulate the development of non-clinical and human clinical trials that seek to improve the care of children.
