Definition of Translational Research
Translational Research refers to the translation of bench science discoveries, to bedside clinical practice, or dissemination to population-based community interventions. Translational science is the field of investigation focused on understanding and addressing the scientific and organizational challenges underlying each step of the translational process. It focuses NOT on specific diseases, but on what is common among them and the translational science process.
