Certificate Program Past Awardees 

"The Eureka Institute for Translational Medicine International Certificate Program was a career game changer for me.  I was able to better understand my identity and responsibility as a translational scientist, which clarified my priorities and helped me see the potential for my work that I had never known existed before. I came home enriched with knowledge about the business, scientific, and regulatory aspects of translational medicine and fortified with multiple strategies on how to tackle common challenges in this work. Most importantly, I came home connected with a community of like-minded individuals from around the world who are in common pursuit of discoveries that will benefit human health. "

“The Eureka program brought together a group of people in their early or mid-training who were passionate about translational research - whether that's from the drug discovery side, from the basic science side, or whether that's from the clinical side – and learn from each other.”

Anupama Narla, MD
