Clinical & Translational Science Institute Degree Programs
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute offers a variety of master’s-level science programs for students at NYU School of Medicine who are interested in pursuing translational and clinical research.
MS in Clinical Investigation
As a master of science in clinical investigation (MSCI) candidate, you prepare for a career in translational research by working closely with distinguished faculty and research mentors to gain foundational knowledge in research methods that support the development of new drugs and devices. We offer several different concentrations in the two-year program.
Students who pursue the translational research concentration learn about research methodologies and develop the skills to successfully conduct independent translational research.
Health Innovations and Therapeutics
In our health innovations and therapeutics concentration, students learn how to accelerate the movement of scientific knowledge into the clinic and bridge the ever-narrowing gap between basic science and the innovations that bring it into practical use.
Learn more about the translational research and health innovations and therapeutics concentrations in our MS in Clinical Investigation program.
Comparative Effectiveness Research
Offered through NYU Langone’s Department of Population Health, the concentration in comparative effectiveness research is for researchers who wish to explore the way disease treatment and prevention strategies affect particular patient populations in specific circumstances. Learn more about the comparative effectiveness concentration.
MD/MS in Translational Research
This five-year, dual degree program is designed for medical students who wish to earn their medical degree and the MS with a concentration in translational research at the same time. Learn more about the MD/MS in Translational Research.
Related Bioinformatics Degrees
Several bioinformatics programs at NYU Langone’s Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences complement our dual degree and MSCI programs in translational and clinical research.
MS in Biomedical Informatics
In the one-year MS in Biomedical Informatics program, students learn to create novel computational methods to solve challenging problems in biomedical research. Learn more about the MS in Biomedical Informatics.
Systems and Computational Biomedicine PhD Training Program
In the three-year Systems and Computational Biomedicine PhD Training Program, doctoral candidates are trained to design and implement methods for capturing, storing, and retrieving clinical and population-level data for translational research.
