This book is all about the definition and finding ways to
prioritize and accelerate translation research in biomedical
sciences and rapidly turning new knowledge into first-in-human
studies. It represents an effort to bring together scientists
active in various areas of translational research to share science
and, hopefully, generate new ideas and potential collaborations.
The book provides a comprehensive overview of translational work
that includes significant discoveries and pioneering contributions,
e.g., in immunology, gene therapy, stem cells and population
sciences. It may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate
students and even ambitious undergraduates in biomedical sciences.
It is also suitable for non-experts, i.e. medical doctors, who wish
to have an overview of some of the fundamental models in
Managing the translational enterprise remains a work in
progress. The world is changing rapidly, and the scientific world
needs to seek new ways to ensure that discoveries get translated
for patients efficiently and as quickly as possible. In addition,
everyone expects the investment in biomedical research should pay
dividends through effective therapeutic solutions. This unique
project provides a broad collaborative approach of the
international scientific team to present its view and opinion how
to cross barriers to incentives for translational research in
Contributing to the book is an international team of prominent
co-authors. The book consists of unique and widely treated topics,
and includes new hypotheses, data and analyses.
