Ohio University’s Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine will start work on a new facility on the Athens campus dedicated to translational research. The Translational Research Facility will support clinical and translational research by offering a high-quality, modern, flexible and accessible research and clinical space focused on providing access to public-facing clinical research.
The facility will promote team science by bringing like-minded research teams together in one space, while enhancing the visibility of OHIO’s research efforts to students, throughout the University, and to the community and region.
“I am beyond excited about the collaborative research that this new space will foster, from biological basis of health and disease to interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public,” Ken Johnson, D.O., executive dean of the Heritage College and chief medical affairs officer for OHIO, said. “The facility will be a necessary cornerstone of the Heritage College’s continued transformation, solidifying our position as a national leader in healthcare, medicine, education, research and service to the region.”
