In May of 2008, the Eureka Institute gathered leaders in translational medicine, educators, and institutional administrators to explore how to address the education of new professionals in TM. This Consensus Conference resulted in an innovative educational initiative to train mid-level career professionals to address critical gaps in the field.

The Institute successfully developed and hosted the first three International Certificate Programs (May 2009, May 2010, May 2011 and May 2012). The fifth installation of the course will be in Siracusa from May 5th-May 11th. The program prepares professionals in the international community of translational medicine who will facilitate the evolution from lead identification to proof of concept in humans. The program is designed to build skills to foster innovative teams, critical thinking, and problem solving. The ultimate goal of this endeavor is to produce multidimensional, interdisciplinary professionals who are prepared for a wide range of careers focusing on improving human health.
