OUR RESEARCH TELLS THE STORY We have taken bold steps. Invested strategically. And our progress is plain to see. From new state-of-the-art labs... to research-driven leaders at the helm of Temple Health... to top

WHERE INSTITUTIONAL STRENGTHS MEET PATIENT NEEDS

researchers recruited here from other institutions... to our national NIH rankings. All these indicators tell part of the story. But we believe our vision for translational research is best illustrated by the research itself—its quality, its potential human impact, and its sheer innovation, exuberance, and diversity. In this report, we highlight several dozen of the most powerful and promising lines of Temple translational research. As you will see, Temple researchers are exploring dozens of novel disease pathways. At every turn—with computers and test tubes, with animal models and human trials—we are hunting for new treatment targets. In many projects, we have already hit these targets—with small molecules, biologicals, and cell- and gene-based therapy— to validate mechanisms and, again, push the science closer to the clinic and improved human health. Even a brief review of our research portfolio reveals the quality of our work—and shows why many peers now say Temple’s research is world-class.

TEMPLE’S PATIENT-FIRST COMMITMENT:

High Outpatient/Inpatient Volumes | Clinical Trials/Registries | Strong Record

of Diversity in Patient Recruitment for Research | Rural Health Programs | Community Partnerships | Outcomes Research Healthcare Disparity/Literacy Initiatives | Public Policy Dialogue | Care for Underserved Communities | Education | Surveys
