Describe the basic principle of translational medicine
Explore more topics related to translational medicine, including drug development, animal research, and clinical trials
Demonstrate how academic scientific research and clinical scientific research can collaborate together
Develop learning interests in the field of translational medicine
Translational medicine, also known as translational science or translational research, is a new, growing discipline in medicine that aims to ensure research flows from ‘benchside’ to ‘bedside’.
This means translating medical research findings into clinical treatment options, drug development and diagnostic tools, as well as bringing clinical difficulties back to the research bench for further development.
You will examine the steps from benchside (research) to bedside (clinical) – starting with identifying a disease and following on through drug development and preclinical trials.
