Translational Science: From Concept to Clinic; From Clinic to Public Policy

Translational Science: From Concept to Clinic;From Clinic to Public Policy

Beginning in 2004,the NIH Roadmap began an expansion of health research from isolated laboratories to clinical application of research findings. This new model, termed translational research, offers many extensive opportunities, but also comes with challenges as scientists and systems adapt to the new model.  In their presentation, Drs. Armstrong and Hare will review some of the possibilities that a focus on translational science and interdisciplinary collaboration offer in the search to improve health, and for the research community at the University of Miami.  The opportunities for basic scientists, clinical researchers, community investigators, and public policy researchers to contribute to a continuum of translational science activities will be reviewed.
