About the Course

Translational science seeks to speed up the process of moving research discoveries from the laboratory into healthcare practices. Numerous scientific and organizational roadblocks can act as obstacles along the path of translation and ultimately hinder the speed of progress in medical research. The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) was established by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to transform and accelerate the translational research process, with the intended result of getting treatments to more patients faster. The field of Translational Science aims to bridge these gaps by: Developing new approaches, technologies, resources and models Demonstrating the usefulness of new approaches, technologies, resources and models Disseminating the resulting data, analyses, and methodologies to the broad scientific community Introduction to Translational Science is an introductory course that provides students with a broad understanding of translational science, the types of research that are conducted under the translational science umbrella, and how this research impacts the public at large. The course will compare and contrast current impediments to clinical research with the potential of translational science and will include selected case studies from the University of Rochester....

Too short, would have expected more details around each step. Didn't go in-depth

Too short and too many interviews with researchers from various fields.

Honestly, I didn't like it all. I thought it was related to translation, it turns out it has nothing to do with it, yet it uses the name of it. Also turns out that I studied science - biology - human health & associated many years ago, and even it relating to it, the videos are too long and boring in my opinion. Yet, the first point is, there is no meaning in using a name correlated to translation if the course has nothing to do with it. This term is just a subjective approach of the objectives of research, and not an official subject in the scientific domain.
