Institute of Translational Medicine (ITM) of ITMO University was established in cooperation with Federal Almazov North-West Research Center as an innovative hub for joint R&D and educational activities in biomedical technologies.

Translational Medicine is a cutting edge interdisciplinary field that fuses clinical medicine and biotechnologies to develop new therapeutic and diagnostic methods.

Translational Medicine addresses the following problems:

  • Development of molecular diagnostic techniques

  • Development of medical devices

  • Design of artificial organs

  • Tissue engineering

  • Gene and cell therapy.

Mission of Institute of Translational Medicine

Mission of the Institute of Translational Medicine is to join competencies of ITMO University’s R&D specialists and medical scientists and physicians of Almazov Research Center in order to improve the efficiency of IT introduction into general medical practice and translate cutting-edge biomedical research into innovations in demand in the current medical marketplace.

Goals of Institute of Translational Medicine

Coordinating and carrying out fundamental and applied interdisciplinary research, implementation of competitive projects and launch of international joint educational programs in biomedical technologies for advanced methods of diagnostics, treatment and nursing.
