The leaders and victors at University of Michigan are redefining translation, extending the definition far beyond the fields of health and biomedicine. Join translational experts for Found in Translation: Moving Beyond Biomedical Research, the 2017 Translational Research Symposium. 

Hear about the future of translational research from keynote speaker, Christopher P. Austin, MD, Director of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences at the National Institutes of Health. You'll learn what Dr. Austin and other experts have found so far and hear stories of the ways that translation has impacted care for patients and affected the community. Thirteen speakers are scheduled throughout the day, there will be a performance representing translation through the arts, and you'll be invited to join the discussion and help shape the future of translation.
