About TRED

Translational Research and Economic Development (TRED) supports NSU’s innovative faculty within its colleges, centers and institutes in the development of their ideas, discoveries and technologies. Led by senior vice president H. Thomas Temple, M.D., TRED will be the focal point for building the connections, resources and entrepreneurial energy for the commercialization of NSU’s research activities.

NSU is actively establishing partnerships with companies, investors and entrepreneurs interested in utilizing NSU’s vast wet and dry lab space and state-of-the-art Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) to conduct research and develop technologies that will benefit the global community. Additionally, Dr. Temple will be bridging the research efforts conducted through the CCR with NSU’s Oceanographic Center, headquartered at the Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center in Hollywood, Fla.

Another major step toward achieving NSU’s Vision 2020, is the state approval received by HCA East Florida to build a new hospital on NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus.

The 200-bed community hospital will serve South Florida, and will eventually become a teaching and research facility integrated with NSU’s clinics, research centers, and clinical trials. This milestone addition, coupled with this year’s opening of NSU’s Center for Collaborative Research, will provide students and faculty members expanded opportunities for research and training. These opportunities will be in a variety of the health professions, including osteopathic (D.O.) and allopathic (M.D.) medicine programs, engineering, and those pursuing other fields of study as well.
