Calling all future health care workers! Are you looking for real-world experience in a clinical or laboratory research setting? Or perhaps you want to fill a gap year and strengthen your CV before applying to medical school. Translational Health Sciences is a new and rapidly growing research field that seeks to “translate” or bridge the gap between advances in laboratory medical research and health care in clinical practice. In a modern-day approach to healthcare, successful research-programs utilize a multidisciplinary team of scientists, health professionals, economists, and statisticians working together to solve complex health and social problems. There is a need to offer students a training path that incorporates clinical science, public health, and basic biomedical research to accelerate the application of biological breakthroughs to human health. To address this opportunity, and the deficit of educated students with these skills, the Faculty of Science is offering a professional Master of Science in Translational Health Sciences (“MSTHS”) program.
The program leverages partnerships between the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Nursing, Windsor Regional Hospital (WRH), Windsor Cancer Research Group, WE Spark Health Institute, Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital and St. Clair College, to train a new generation of clinical researchers. The MSTHS program will leverage existing University of Windsor research strengths in cancer biology, environmental health, and neuroscience, as well as the expanding network of clinical research being done via the Windsor Cancer Research Group (WCRG) and WE Spark Health Institute.
