Definition translational research

Translational research is research at the interface of basic science, patient-related research and clinical application. It requires collaboration between clinical and preclinical groups and offers opportunities for innovation and breakthroughs through its multidisciplinary approach. Clinical problems raise questions that can be answered with methods of basic scientific research. The new insights can be translated into opportunities for prevention, discovery of disease mechanisms, the identification of novel (drug) targets for intervention, and/or development of advanced therapy medicinal products, as well as diagnostic instruments, biomarkers, or algorithms, medical devices, and treatment strategies.
