Translational Research Initiative

The University of Glasgow’s College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences (MVLS) has embedded, and is continuing to develop, impact through identifying, championing and facilitating the translation of highly original novel ideas and concepts across basic underpinning pre-clinical and clinically-facing research in areas that encompass pharmaceuticals, interventions and medical devices.

The Translational Research Initiative (TRI) was formed to deliver this vision. Integrated within MVLS’ broader innovation strategy and aligned with substantial University funding to support dedicated staff, infrastructure and project costs, TRI provides a nexus for translational activities, coordinating access to funding and providing project management support and training for staff through an integrated hub.

The TRI manages the MVLS , which engages with researchers to help identify projects with translational potential. Some of the key outcomes are as follows:

The TRI is routinely managed through the TRI Management Team (TRI-MT), which reports into, and take advice from, the larger TRI Operational Group.
