Translational Medicine Centers

The University of California is expected to hear plans this summer by UC San Diego for a $110 million Center for Novel Therapeutics (CNT) designed to speed development of new treatments by the university and its industry partners. CNT is one of several efforts by academic institutions to draw industry into joint translational medicine efforts. The University of Florida is building a $45 million Clinical and Translational Research Building in Gainesville, while two Buckeye State schools, The Ohio State University and Ohio University, are launching a $35 million venture fund to finance translational projects.

How successful will academic centers focused on translational medicine be in bringing more drugs to market faster?
