The Translational Research Core (TRC) facilitates, implements, and provides support and results pertinent to laboratory correlates for approved clinical projects. Additionally, the TRC provides molecular biology support for clinical research protocols. Clinical research fellows and medical students are also trained in laboratory methods of patient oriented research.  The mission is to develop and provide techniques for investigators to elucidate the molecular pathophysiology of clinical diseases.

The Translational Research Core was formed from the Clinical Core Laboratory of the Cancer Institute and the Clinical Core Laboratory of the CTSI. It is Co-Directed by Drs. Frank Martiniuk and Lennie Liebes.

The TRC has received the Pharsight Academic Center of Excellence award since 2002, allowing access to the most current nonlinear modeling software.
