About Eureka Institute

The mission of the Eureka Institute is to develop a community of translational medicine professionals equipped to catalyze the application of discoveries for the benefit of human health.  

The Eureka Institute for Translational Medicine was established in 2008 by leaders in the field and incorporated in Italy with the legal status of a not-for-profit organization.  In 2009, Eureka initiated an annual intense innovative 8-day certificate course on translational medicine with the goals of exposing talented young people to the challenges and opportunities of Translational Medicine in an international setting. 

The course is offered to a maximum of 30 translational medicine professionals at various stages of career development in both Academia and Industry.  The curriculum is delivered by experts from academia, industry, government-supported regulatory agencies (FDA, EMEA), venture capital and intellectual property law, as well as patient organizations.

The program is designed to build skills to foster innovative teams, critical thinking, and problem solving. The ultimate goal of this endeavor is to produce multidimensional, interdisciplinary professionals who are prepared for a wide range of careers focusing on improving human health.
