Educational Objectives

By the end of this course, students will be able to

  • Articulate how a translational approach to scientific research can expedite the movement of knowledge to improvements in health;
  • Describe the critical role of patients in translational research and list ways of engaging them in the process;
  • Define the basic knowledges and skills required in translational research

COVID-19 has given the world one of its most significant challenges. Translational scientists have and will continue to play a crucial role in tackling these challenges, from developing and implementing diagnostic tests to treatments and vaccines and health policy.

The Virtual Schools were started to tackle the intrinsic difficulties of effective translational medicine whilst at the same time connecting attendees in a virtual setting and allowing them to still benefit from the ‘hidden curriculum’.
