Translational Health Research Center

Translational Health Research Center

Some of the most important and scientifically interesting challenges to human health transcend academic disciplines and traditional boundaries of research inquiry. The Translational Health Research Center seeks to transcend existing disciplines and boundaries to create and apply new knowledge that will improve health outcomes for our students, community, and the world. Texas State faculty, staff, and students in every college take part in translational health research seeking new ways to prevent and treat disease and illness, develop resilient communities equipped to respond to public health emergencies, deliver high quality healthcare, and address social and economic health inequities that lead to poor health among those in rural and underserved communities.
