Intro - MCTMLearn how to turn basic discoveries from the laboratories to drugs, medical devices or clinical processes for use in the patient-care setting through our Master in Clinical Translation Management program.

The MCTM program will help students identify sources of funding to move a project forward while facilitating technologies that show significant promise in navigating the translational process, allowing new treatments and cures to reach patients.

Students will learn how to identify the qualities that make a biotechnology product or company likely to succeed in the endeavor to commercialize their product. From there, they can find ways to navigate and address any potential scientific, legal, financial, and management issues that might arise at any stage of commercialization.

Transform Cutting-Edge Research Into Patient Care

From Bench To Bedside​MCTM is a one-year online program that fast-tracks its students through a rigorous curriculum and provides a robust understanding of the biotechnology industry as well as the business, marketing, and regulatory skills necessary for a career in this field.

Though the majority of the program is completed through online modules, students are provided ample opportunity for in-person training, networking, and professional development through the university.

In addition, participants of the MCTM program are required to attend three residency periods – the first in Houston, the second as part of an international study abroad program, and the final for the annual BIO International Convention.
