The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) defines translational research broadly to include the early steps necessary to develop new therapeutics, devices and diagnostics from basic discoveries, the steps necessary to establish real world efficacy, and the research needed to improve the practical implementation and dissemination of improved approaches to care.
Testing basic science discoveries for clinical effect and/or applicability.
Testing new interventions in human subjects under controlled environments to form the basis for clinical applications and evidence‐based guidelines.
Research on the application of new interventions or therapies in general practice; research that yields knowledge on best ways to implement new medical interventions in the clinic.
Investigations of factors and/or interventions that influence the health of populations; ultimately results in improved health of the public.
