Translational Research Forum

Building the Bridge Between Clinicians and Scientists

The Translational Research Forum highlights translational research, with a focus on collaborative research between basic and clinical scientists. The goal is to produce meaningful and applicable results that directly benefit human health.

The forum brings attention to ongoing translational research studies at Albany Medical College that have the potential to impact patients. It also opens the lines of communication between clinicians and scientists to start new collaborations.


Forums are held on the first Thursday of every month from 4 to 5 p.m. in Huyck Auditorium and via Webex. We host a diverse scope of clinicians and scientists who discuss their translational research programs. Discussion includes how translational research efforts begin and are fostered, and how challenges are overcome.

Huyck Auditorium is located on the main floor of the A Building at Albany Medical Center. Information on past forums, including annual recaps, can be found by contacting Miranda Bryant, Administrative Assistant, Molecular & Cellular Physiology.

Please see the forum schedule on our Events calendar page.
