6 Trends in Translational Science that Will Improve Your Health


By Deborah Grady, MD, MPH, CTSI Interim Director, via UCSF.edu

Translational science, also known as bench-to-bedside research, aims to translate biomedical discoveries into useful applications and treatments, such as a drug, device, diagnostic or behavioral intervention, that impact health and health outcomes.

At UC San Francisco, my colleagues and I at the UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) are collaborating and innovating in ways that are transforming health care as we know it.

We're also looking ahead at the trends and influences that are reshaping – and more importantly, accelerating – translational science, all with a focus on improving health. We partnered with Carry The One Radio to produce podcasts on each of the trends. Learn more about them below, or listen to the full playlist here.

1. Academic-industry partnerships: New models to kick start early translational research.
2. Team Science: The revolution.
3. Internet-enabled clinical research: Going big.
4. Online learning meets the old-fashioned classroom: The sweet spot for going global with graduate education.
5. Big data for health: Sharing is a good thing.
6. Streamlining regulatory approval: Large-scale institutional research just got easier.
