Engineering, business, TBMH students converge to prepare for real-world challenges

November 07, 2017

A new academic alliance at the Virginia Tech Carilion Health Sciences and Technology campus in Roanoke is aimed at teaching students how to turn great ideas into real-world solutions and products.

Students from the translational biology, medicine, and health (TBMH) graduate program’s gateway class will partner with students from the College of Engineering and the Pamplin College of Business this fall in a new translation and commercialization module.

The gateway class is divided into six modules where students intensively study exemplar cases in areas that include neuroscience, cancer, metabolic-cardiovascular science, infectious disease-immunology, and health implementation science.

Each module takes contemporary issues of biomedical and health sciences research covering the molecular biology, physiology, behavior, commercialization, and health-care delivery aspects and explores them in detail.
