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.

The aim is to improve how we detect, diagnose and treat health conditions, and improve health outcomes for patients.

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.
