MCTM Program

Master in Clinical Translation Management

Transition Technology From Bench To Bedside

Learn 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

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.

The great faculty members with academic excellence and diverse professional experience, the teaching methods and partnerships make this program unique that everyone in the biotech field should consider.

Carlotta Borsoi, MCTM ’17

The MCTM program completely changed my career path, but I realized this career path is a better way for me to help people sooner rather than later rather than never having a project get off the ground.
