Translational medicine builds advances basic research which is study of biological processes using cell cultures or animal models and these uses for to progress in new therapies or medical procedures.
Translational medicine is becoming even more interdisciplinary. Need in new computational approaches are made with the large amounts of data pouring in from genomics and then transfer to other fields, and as new advances in physics, materials science approaches to analyze or diagnose medical conditions. Science of Translational medicine is helpful to researchers more efficiently to access that apply new findings from various fields such the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, physician scientists.
Scientists and engineers work toward bigger-picture goals for improve in patient care and allow them to better assimilate information that currently is coming at them from multiple sources. The potential to improve human quality-of-life is available only through silo-like channels. In cardiologists who are specialized in the basic cardiology, but not the physics or computer science literature, might miss an important breakthrough that could advance their own research. Translational medicine will help keep researchers informed about advances across all disciplines. Translational medicine can encourage flow of information from the lab to the clinic and vice versa from the clinic to the lab.
