St. Joseph’s Translational Research Institute (SJTRI) is a private, nonprofit research institute that is engaged in translation of early stage therapies based of drugs, devices and stem cells to clinical development. Located near the campus of Georgia Institute of Technology, SJTRI seeks to bridge academia, private industry, and nonprofi t by serving as a catalyst for scientific collaboration. The institute has developed highly sophisticated preclinical models of various diseases and uses them to provide preclinical and clinical solutions to move new devices and therapeutic technologies from bench to bedside. Effective January 30, 2008, a memorandum of understanding was signed between Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRC) and Saint Joseph’s Health System, Inc. (SJHS) with a goal to create a unique research infrastructure for collaborations based on the complementary interests, capabilities and capacities. Signifi cant collaborative initiatives are ongoing between SJHS and GaTech in the area of oncology,robotics and regenerative medicine. In this seminar, the capabilities of SJTRI, and its collaborations and synergies with GaTech will be discussed.
