The Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) aims to replace the status-quo of one-size-fits-all-medicine with individualized health care that is based on the known genetic factors influencing health and disease and that takes advantage of advances in digital technology for real-time health monitoring.
Under the leadership of Eric J. Topol, M.D., one of the world’s premier cardiologists and physician/scientists, STSI has created major programs in both research and education-training that bridge science with medicine, and academia with industry.
These programs accelerate integration and innovation by emphasizing the three dimensions of translation:
• Traditional bench to bedside,
• Bedside to bench and back to bedside, and
• Bedside to the community and the practice of medicine.
