About the Course

As a partner of the Eureka Institute for Translational Medicine, the Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) has sponsored Stanford attendees to Eureka’s annual certificate course in Siracusa and other Eureka partner courses.  Our MCHRI Eureka alumni have grown in number and strength through these opportunities.  Their passion in spreading the know-how of translational medicine at Stanford has propelled MCHRI’s educational efforts, including our well-attended Seminar Series and the annual Symposium.  

With our talented alumni and support of Eureka leadership, we are excited to announce an inaugural local Eureka-inspired course, MCHRI Eureka 2020 Certificate Course in Translational Medicine. This 5-day intensive course will be held at Asilomar Conference Center in Monterey, CA, from Sunday, February 9th to Thursday, February 13th, 2020.


The goal for this course is to develop a local community of translational medicine professionals equipped to catalyze the application of discoveries in maternal and child health by leveraging the resources and expertise that are uniquely Stanford.
