As a partner of the Eureka Institute for Translational Medicine, the Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) has sponsored Stanford attendees to Eureka’s annual certificate course in Syracuse and other Eureka partner courses. The MCHRI Eureka alumni cohort has grown in number and strength through these opportunities. Their passion in spreading the know-how of translational medicine at Stanford has propelled MCHRI’s educational efforts, including well-attended Seminar Series and an annual Symposium.

With these talented alumni and support of Eureka leadership, MCHRI launched its inaugural local Eureka-inspired course in 2020: the MCHRI Eureka Certificate Course in Translational Medicine.

The goal for the Winter School is to develop a local community of TM professionals equipped to catalyze the application of discoveries in maternal and child health by leveraging the resources and expertise that are uniquely Stanford.
