What is Translational Research?

Also known as 'bench-to-bedside' research, it is a type of medical research that focusses on 'translating' basic science discoveries from the laboratory into the clinic.

At TRI, we work to develop new treatments and diagnostics for conditions ranging from various cancers to autoimmune diseases, and translate these discoveries into improved healthcare.
