Understand the emerging discipline of translational medicine and the process of taking research from ‘benchside’ to ‘bedside'.

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.

What topics will you cover?

  • The basic principles of translational medicine.
  • How translational medicine has a lot of potential.
  • Basic knowledge of medical-related research, from drug-development, animal research, to clinical trial.
