School of Translational Medicine of the Medical Faculty Mannheim

The School of Translational Medicine of the Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University (STMM) is an umbrella organization that bundles and expands the currently running programs for doctoral students and the advanced training for young clinician and life scientists. It provides a framework for training, scientific exchange as well as translational interaction between clinical and basic researchers for various doctoral programs (Dr. med. and Dr. sc. hum) as well as continuing education activities for other young scientists at the faculty (e. g. ICON and MACS). The STMM makes external resources available, and offers own courses, conferences and schools.

Translational medical research

Thematically, the STMM covers the entire spectrum of translational medical research. On the one hand, young scientists are encouraged to transfer research results from the laboratory to the clinical environment. On the other hand, previously unresolved clinical questions are translated into research projects. In addition, translational medical research includes the application of clinical research results in the broader health care system by introducing new knowledge into medical practice. Thus, aspects of medical economics and health care are also core competencies in translational medical research. Furthermore, commercial translation plays an essential role in the translational continuum because new interventions must be both therapeutically effective and commercially successful to achieve clinical relevance for the healthcare system. Therefore, the STMM also offers teaching and collaborations in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurship, commercialization and industrial practice as part of the translational medical research focus.


The STMM is led by a Board of Directors, which coordinates the work in cooperation with a Steering Committee, the Members’ Assembly and the STMM office
