Message from Vice President for Health Sciences

For years, dedicated researchers have confronted the issue of how to show the real-world relevance of their painstaking work, and demonstrating its value to an all-too-often skeptical public.  Today, the rapidly evolving world of translational science and research is paving the way in changing this paradigm.  Scholarly work in this key area is promoting the "bench-to-patient" work that is changing the way both the public and industry view and fund research.

Creighton is proud to be among the first to step up to the challenge of research and research outcome in the 21st Century with the establishment of the Center for Clinical & Translational Research.  In addition to providing assistance to our current institutional research efforts, the Center will train future leaders in the area of translational research for both academia and industry.

With Dr. Devendra Agrawal at the helm, and an expanding research faculty, the Center will establish Creighton University as a leader in this critical and challenging arena.
