Center for Translational Medicine

Eslam Mohamed, PhD, PharmBS
Director of Center for Translational Medicine

The Center for Translational Medicine (CTM) is committed to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in various areas described below.

It is supported by basic, preclinical, and clinical research. An important quest for CTM is to understand the origin of diverse disease conditions. A second, but not less important, goal is to conduct drug discovery and development studies, including drug target identification and validation, efficacy and mechanism of action studies, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and metabolic and toxicological studies to develop novel therapeutics that can alleviate and potentially cure or prevent diseases.

Our center is founded upon the notion that scientific collaborations make the healthcare field flourish. In this regard, the CTM pursues multidisciplinary research between faculty from the different CNU Colleges and Research Centers, and researchers of national and global external organizations. Through these collaborations, CTM fosters academic and public-private partnerships in translational medicine. We strive for research excellence which ensures a stimulating and nurturing environment for producing the next generation of highly competitive pharmacists and physicians. Our students benefit from this unique environment where interdisciplinary approaches will reflect situations from the healthcare arena.
