Changing the course of disease
Translating scientific knowledge into health care practice and delivery
Think of them as medical middlemen—the researchers who take cutting-edge scientific discoveries and translate them into therapies that your doctor can use. At WSU, these experts develop novel therapies and vaccines. They devise different methods of delivering drugs to make them more potent weapons against disease. They determine which exercise and nutrition strategies yield the best results.
Since each of us is unique, WSU scientists seek to understand the fundamental biological makeup of individuals. That knowledge will allow them to tailor therapies to achieve the greatest possible benefit.
WSU researchers apply fundamental knowledge to change the course of disease. They help doctors achieve better outcomes for patients like you.
