The Translational Services Program (non-clinical and clinical) is one of the core capabilities of the Penn Vet CORL Group in the Section of Surgery, Department of Clinical Studies New Bolton Center. It is comprised of the Surgical Models Services, Non-Clinical (GLP) and Clinical (VICH-GL9) Trials Design and Management, Imaging and Histological Services.
The focus of the Translational Services Program is directed towards supporting product development at any level providing a “one-stop-and-shop” R&D platform within and outside the University of Pennsylvania biomedical community. This program has the skills, experience and knowledge to assist researchers, product developers and project managers in a modular manner starting with project design and ending with data analysis, study audits, final report, regulatory filings and publication. The main partners for collaborative projects are scientists from the greater Philadelphia area, national and international clinicians, material scientists and industrial partners. The investigations are typically of an applied nature and are conducted under a research agreement or a fee for services arrangement.
The PENN VET CORL Group in its current make-up has been a partner in pivotal studies for 10 years, assisting device manufacturers in the successful translation of novel therapeutic interventions and its submission of regulatory filings.
