Translational Researcher

Conducting research in our challenging health care environment requires a basis in translational research, a crosscutting approach that connects basic biomedical discovery to global population health impact. Key health problems are conceptualized broadly in terms of transitions between basic scientific discovery, clinical insights, implications for practice, implications for population health, and improved global health. Generating knowledge in a translational framework results in a synthesis of information drawn from many disciplines, resulting in broad, practical solutions to health problems.
