Center for Translational Research and Education

At Loyola University’s Center for Translational Research, scientists conduct research that can then be immediately taken to a clinical environment and administered to patients. The facility fosters scientific collaboration and optimizes discovery and interdisciplinary linkages, making it one of the most advanced medical laboratories of its kind.
