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.

THE BENEFITS OF TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH

  • Local investment and commercialisation of Australian medical breakthroughs
  • Shorter time to market of medical innovations to practical treatments and therapeutics
  • Long-term development for the Australian medical and innovation industries
  • Synergistic collaboration through disease-focussed global research networks of clinicians and researchers
  • Better health for the global community, courtesy of new medical treatments and therapeutics.

THE TRANSLATIONAL PATHWAY

The TRI translational research model sees a distinctive role played by each member of a multi-disciplinary team that collectively agree on the clinical question, the goal and the required outcomes. The model addresses emerging research needs through the internationally accepted translational pathway from T1 to T5.
