Clinical Translational Research defined:
Clinical research includes (1) patient-oriented research; (2) epidemiologic and behavioral studies; and (3) outcomes research and health services research.
Translational research (T1-T4) includes:
T1, Translation to Humans: Testing basic science discoveries in humans for clinical effect and/or applicability;
T2, Translation to Patients: Testing new interventions in human subjects under controlled environments to form the basis for clinical applications and evidence--based guidelines;
T3, Translation to Practice: 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; and
T4, Translation to Population: Investigations of factors and/or interventions that influence the health of populations; ultimately results in improved health of the public.
