Translational and clinical research

Translational research describes the process of converting basic scientific findings into novel treatments and diagnostics aimed to address unmet clinical needs. Here, we showcase a plethora of diverse studies, ranging from the investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying the onset and course of a disease using preclinical models, to the development of innovative interventions in human subjects with the goal to guide health care policy and clinical practice.
