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. TRED is 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, NSU is connecting 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 2025, 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.

External Funding Recognition Event

Every Fall, TRED has the distinct honor of recognizing NSU faculty, staff, and students for their extraordinary efforts in being recipients of externally sponsored funding.  For fiscal year 2020, we honor 149 recipients who through great efforts and success received approximately $120 million of funding.  This year, TRED is pleased to recognize the success of these individuals through virtual means and we encourage you to explore the video and other materials listed below to get to know our honorees and their accomplishments.  In addition, honorees will receive their customized commemorative plaque.
