Translational Research in Regenerative Medicine

Translational science/research, a current popular phrase describing various efforts and goals on how biomedical research is moving toward clinical application, is a complex procedure involving many diverse, interacting parties, expertise bases, priorities and resources. The conceptual definition of translational research has begun to slowly broaden beyond its original bench to bedside. Therefore, a more contemporary definition of translation science would have to stress the absorption of knowledge from a variety of sources followed by the constant refining, conversion and application of this knowledge. Such definition will allow the integration of the different perspectives of scientist and clinicians working in the field. The development process for new therapeutics carries unforeseen risks and often experiences setbacks during both preclinical and clinical testing. The recent advances in biomedical research have offered the translational process the ability to not only focus on product feasibility issues, but critically center on customer performance in the marketplace: patient safety, therapeutic efficacy and quality of life improvements.Therefore, to keep up with all these advances and to address the intrinsic and considerable heterogeneity in processes governing the translation of scientific discoveries into clinical applications, a dedicated educational track that provides a venue for training on the different component of the translational process is critically needed. The BSRT translational track aims to provide such platform and to promote the progress and success of translational research in the different research areas at the BCRT
