Our industry expertise is the culmination of efforts from some of the most highly regarded organizations and institutions. It is this affiliation and partnership with Stanford University and its School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and Stanford Children’s Health that is at the core of TRA’s identity. Because of this, each institution is visually represented in the three rings of our graphic mark, a symbol meant to communicate our harnessed and dynamic energy, channeling forces of change through collaboration and innovation. Together with our partners and clients, we embark on developing and producing a multitude of possibilities and solutions that aim to improve the human condition through our unified spheres of influence.
Vast in both its physical scale and its impact on human health — locally, nationally and globally — Stanford Medicine is comprises three main components:
- Stanford School of Medicine, a premier research-intensive medical school that improves health through leadership and collaborative discoveries, and innovation in patient care, education and research.
- Stanford Hospital and Clinics, consistently ranked among the top hospitals in the nation for advanced care in such areas as cancer treatment, cardiac care, neurology, orthopedic surgery, and organ transplantation.
- Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, internationally recognized for advancing family-centered care of children and expectant mothers.
The Medical Center is uniquely advantaged by its location on the main Stanford University campus, adjacent to top-ranked programs in engineering, physical and biological sciences, computer science, ethics and other disciplines. This close proximity — coupled with Stanford’s long tradition of encouraging collaboration — fosters multidisciplinary research and, ultimately, accelerates the pace at which new knowledge can be translated into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat disease.
