Translating Research into Practice

Chancellor Charles R. Bantz

As Chancellor since 2003, I have observed that IUPUI faculty are conducting important research and making significant contributions to improving all aspects of people’s lives. Their research mission demonstrates the value of generating knowledge and taking that knowledge where it can be used to make lives better. Such scholars Translate Research Into Practice.

To celebrate these faculty researchers and the impact they have, I have launched the IUPUI Center for Translating Research Into Practice (TRIP). I have asked Professor Sandra Petronio to spearhead the initiative and Stephan Viehweg to serve as Interim Director. This center both identifies IUPUI’s translational scholars and recognizes their work in several programs. We are excited about the potential to bring local and national attention to the great work our faculty are doing on the campus of IUPUI.

You can participate by learning about some of our Featured Translational Scholars or Identify Yourself as an IUPUI TRIP Scholar.

IUPUI Translating Research Into Practice (TRIP) Keynote Address by Dean Jay L. Hess Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 5 PM

This annual address features IU School of Medicine Dean Jay Hess, one of the nation’s leaders in epigenetics of leukemia. In his address, ‘Speeding the Clinical Translation of Discovery,’ Dr. Hess will share some of his experiences in early stage drug discovery in academia and in establishing sequencing-based diagnostics to improve care for cancer patients. As the genetic abnormalities that underlie cancer are being defined, new opportunities arise to develop more targeted and effective therapies, however bottlenecks remain in clinical translation. Dr. Hess became the 10th Dean of the IU School of Medicine (IUSM) and Vice President for University Clinical Affairs at Indiana University on September 1st, 2013. He joined IUSM after eight years at the University of Michigan, where he made major strides in advancing translational research, pathology informatics and sequencing-based diagnostics.
