What is translational and clinical research?

What is translational and clinical research?

Clinical research is the study of human subjects and involves testing new methods of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of illness. Translational research acts as a bridge between science and practice. It links laboratory science with patients and findings with the community’s needs.

What is Clinical and Translational Science Institute?

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) facilitates clinical and translational research to improve patient and community health. We do this by providing infrastructure, services and training to enable research to be conducted more efficiently, effectively and in new ways.

What are the 3 types of translational research?

Translational Pipeline The schematic outlines/classifies the stages of translational research as: T1 – developing treatments and interventions. T2 – testing the efficacy and effectiveness of these treatments and interventions. T3 – dissemination and implementation research for system-wide change.

What is translational science process?

Translation is the process of turning observations in the laboratory, clinic, and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public — from diagnostics and therapeutics to medical procedures and behavioral changes.

Why is clinical and translational research important?

An essential part of translating laboratory discoveries to treatments is clinical research, a type of research that involves a particular person or group of people or uses materials from humans. Clinical research is essential to bringing research discoveries to communities.

What is an example of translational research?

One prime example of translational research in human disease is the study of cancer therapy. Extensive cooperation between basic researchers, clinicians, and industry has generated numerous new targeted compounds with enhanced efficacy and decreased toxicity.

What is CTSI research?

CTSI is enhancing the way research is conducted to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives. We provide a comprehensive infrastructure of research services, training, grants, tools, and more.

What does clinical translation mean?

Clinical translation is research that leads to better understanding of disease, and/or development of new diagnostic tests or treatments. Clinical translation may involve: Measuring the impact of a new strategy to prevent, treat or diagnose a disease in humans, using a clinical trial.

What is the purpose of translational research?

Translational research seeks to produce more meaningful, applicable results that directly benefit human health. The goal of translational research is to translate (move) basic science discoveries more quickly and efficiently into practice.

What are examples of translational research?

Drug development, some studies of disease mechanisms, including proteomics, genomics, genetics, metabolomics, and animal models, are examples of T1 phase translational research.

What is translational research in healthcare?

Translational Research takes scientific discoveries made in the laboratory, in the clinic or out in the field and transforms them into new treatments and approaches to medical care that improve the health of the population.*
