What is translational medicine?

Translational medicine can be defined as the continuum from a scientific idea or finding to a diagnostic tool and/or therapy applied to human diseases. The field of translational medicine encompasses molecular medicine, intellectual property, financing, regulation, preclinical and clinical trial studies, among other disciplines. Translational Medicine has emerged as a discipline central to the goal of converting basic science discoveries to diagnostic and therapeutic tools that can be harnessed to treat disease and improve human health.
