Translational medicine aims to obtain a new understanding of disease mechanisms and strives to design and develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic tools. It covers the cyclical journey linking unmet patient needs, laboratory research, and clinical trials. The major emphasis of the course lies on the dynamic interplay between the world of in vitro and in vivo laboratory-based preclinical research and the world of clinical research. During the course, you interact with interdisciplinary teams of researchers who collaborate towards translating biomedical research discoveries into medical practice.
