Translational Medicine

Excellence in preclinical testing, bioskills training and expert resources for every step in the medical innovation cycle.

Translation, or translational medicine, is the process of turning observations in the laboratory, clinic and community into inventions and  interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public — from diagnostics and therapeutics to medical procedures and behavioral changes.

In the medtech innovation cycle from “bench to bedside,” or more accurately from concept to cure to commercialization, T3 Labs provides the services medical product innovators require in an industry leading preclinical CRO. Excellence in preclinical testing and translational medicine brings efficiency in acquisition of data to support product refinements, preparedness for regulatory approvals or other inflection points that minimize the number of “$1,000 days” and maximize the value of investment in innovation for medtech companies of all shapes and sizes.

Physician innovator founded, scientist led

T3 Labs was founded by physician innovators and we continue to support such efforts today by having specialty teams in multiple clinical areas of expertise from neurology to podietry. Our team consists of scientists as interested in their area of expertise as our sponsors.

Our relationships with the Global Center for Medical Innovation ( GCMI), Georgia Tech, Emory University, the Coulter Translational Partnership and other academic and industry leaders support translational medicine by bringing substantial resources to medtech innovators at every step in the innovation cycle, which include services such as  design, engineering, prototyping, preclinical testing, protocol development, product refinement to support regulatory approval and bioskills training for surgeons, medical school residents, allied healthcare professionals, and first responders.

T3 Labs has the surgical, veterinary and specialized experience needed to generate positive preclinical results for your drugs and biologics programs.

Delivery, dosage, biodistribution and toxicity are the top challenges for developers of new drugs and biologics. Particularly so, for those specific indications where current therapies are underwhelming. Heart attacks, critical limb ischemia, wound healing, stroke and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) are a few of the unmet medical needs that will require new, innovative approaches for better treatments and eventual cures. T3 Labs has the unique capabilities to accelerate the development of tomorrow’s breakthrough drugs and biologics.
