Certificate Programs

Translational & Molecular Sciences Certificate
This certificate program formalizes graduate training and education in translational sciences at UAB. Students completing the certificate will be training in one or more key facets that comprise the process and goals of translational research; namely, understanding mechanisms of disease, how these insights are then used to develop, test, and apply therapies for the treatment of disease, and how translational research is a bridge between basic and applied research. This program evolved from the UAB HHMI Med-Grad Fellows Program.

Technology Commercialization & Entrepreneurship Certificate
The Graduate Certificate in Technology Commercialization and Entrepreneurship is designed to expose students (MBA and non-MBA) and scientists to the business foundations of entrepreneurship and technology commercialization. The program is designed to blend knowledge and experiential learning to help move scientific discovery and inventions out of the lab and into the marketplace. Unless otherwise approved by the student's mentor, the student will be responsible for this certificate program's tuition costs.

CIRTL@UAB Teaching Certificates
The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) is an NSF Center for Learning and Teaching in higher education. UAB is a CIRTL institution. CIRTL uses graduate education as the leverage point to develop a national STEM faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse student audiences as part of successful professional careers. The goal of CIRTL is to improve the STEM learning of all students at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation.

Supplemental Programs

Roadmap Scholars Program in Neuroscience (RMS). Supported by the NIH, the UAB Office for Equity and Diversity, and the UAB Comprehensive Neuroscience Center, RMS seeks to provide support in academics and research to neuroscience graduate students who are racially diverse and/or possess disabilities, supplementary to the student's GBS theme requirements. This program is not currently a certificate program.
