Colorado State University – C. Wayne McIlwraith Translational Medicine Institute
Colorado State University’s Translational Medicine Institute (TMI) is a high-tech innovation hub, bringing together smart people to work in creative spaces where innovation will thrive. The TMI’s goal is to discover and deliver solutions that utilize the body’s healing capacity and improves the lives of animals and the human’s that care for them. The Translational Medicine Institute is uniquely positioned for discoveries in translational medicine, as biologic therapies – which leverage the body’s own healing powers – present a new therapeutic frontier.
The institute will draw on established areas of CSU research expertise in orthopedics, biomedical engineering, immunology, infectious disease, surgical advances, and other medical fields.
The institute will bring together educators and innovators from academia, industry, public agencies, and other entities to pursue development of promising medical technologies, with special attention to those with potential for commercialization. Specialized equipment, research space, clinical resources, and conference areas are designed to support this collaboration among animal and human medical specialists.
