Overview

Learn about a new discipline aiming to ensure medical research reaches patients.

Translational medicine, also known as translational science or translational research, is a new, growing discipline in medicine that aims to ensure research flows from ‘benchside’ to ‘bedside’.

This means translating medical research findings into clinical treatment options, drug development and diagnostic tools, as well as bringing clinical difficulties back to the research bench for further development.

You will examine the steps from benchside (research) to bedside (clinical) - starting with identifying a disease and following on through drug development and preclinical trials.

This course has been designed for senior undergraduates and postgraduates, or for those with a basic knowledge of biology or medical practice.
