Achievements of Translational Medicine

Translational medicine, in enhancing the efficiency of biomedical discovery and application, rather than attempting to modify existing processes within disciplines, has come to serve as a unifying concept in the increasingly complex, specialised, and fragmented field of biomedical research. It has emerged based on the synthesis of information gained from multiple investigative sources. Thanks to this approach, human biology and diseases are better understood and therapies more rapidly identified and tested, which, taken together, result in improved patient treatment and outcomes.

However, there is the need to stimulate the development of a brighter vision for translational and clinical research, to ensure that these disciplines remain powerful engines of creativity.
