The University of St. Thomas (UST) in Houston, Tex. is now offering a Master of Science in Clinical Translation Management, announced the University on its website.The new degree program includes a partnership between UST’s Cameron School of Business and the Houston Methodist Research Institute.
As reported earlier this week in a post about UST’s new International Business degree, the Cameron School of Business, according to the University, is educating students to be “leaders of faith and character.” The School hosted a business ethics conference for deans of Catholic schools of business last semester.
According to the UST website, clinical translation involves bringing discoveries made in research labs into practical use within the medical field. The University’s clinical translation management program will “bridge the gap between science and business and support entrepreneurship in the biomedical space,” UST reported on its website.
UST is reportedly the third university in the nation and the only in the South to offer the degree. Students enrolled in the program will study business, math, biology, and ethics to acquire skills such as product development and overseas manufacturing management, fundraising, marketing, and starting and supervising an organization. The partnership will also include a practical application component allowing students the ability to witness and experience the information discussed in the classroom used in the field.
The University of St. Thomas in Houston is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
