International Certificate Course in Translational FinMed (ICC_TFM)

ICC_TFM is a new advanced educational project to better understand Translational Medicine challenges in a unique, innovative, managerial and financial mindset.

Translational Medicine (TM) is an innovative and rapidly growing knowledge area, able to speed up research & development (R&D) processes and time to market strategies for new and innovative treatments, instruments, devices and diagnostic tools by using a multi-disciplinary, highly collaborative approach. TM requires “new translational profiles and skills” with different backgrounds coming from R&D departments, Healthcare organisations, Pharmaceutical / Biopharmaceutical Companies and Institutions, Financial companies and institutions, Start uppers and Professionals, equipped to bridge the gap between clinical investigation, technological and management and financial fundamentals.

Such TM unique and transversal skills are becoming crucial in evaluating and exploiting health care research to efficiently meet diagnostic and therapeutic needs. Transitioning from vertical, functional and specialised know how into a multidisciplinary-translational approach combining health care mindset with management fundamentals, will provide unique hybrid knowledge in areas such as trial design, intellectual proprieties, and leadership.
