Frequently Asked Questions:

 

-What is the MCTS Program?

 The MS in Clinical & Translational Science is designed to train future team leaders in clinical and translational science research. The program consists of a combination of integrative didactic and hands-on educational experiences that will provide students with a global, yet detailed, perspective on the complex continuum of translating hypothesis-driven basic research findings into clinically useful and commercially viable tests or treatments.

 

-What is the CIBS Concentration?

The CIBS concentration is designed for students wishing to specialize in computer generated image reconstruction for understanding  visualization of normal and diseased organ function and accurate localization of tumors in organs. Emphasis is placed on understanding aspects of clinical research including drug development, biology of disease and functional imaging coupled with structural aspects obtained from computer generated image reconstruction to arrive at the final reconstructed 3D image.

 

-What will the MCTS Program CIBS Concentration Prepare you to do?

 Graduates of the program will utilize the knowledge obtained to design and oversee programs, facilitate and manage collaborations, and lead research teams in clinical and translational research.

 

 -Is Financial Aid Available?

 Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School students may be eligible for full- or partial-tuition scholarships. Research Scientists (particularly at the PhD level) should contact their Human Resources department to determine if they are eligible for tuition assistance.
