How can we efficiently and quickly make the most recently developed cutting-edge medical technologies and treatments accessible to people to enable them live healthier and longer lives? How can we further develop the presently available treatments and return them to basic research to make them more effective? The response to each of these questions is 'Translational Medicine' or 'Translational Research'. Translational medicine has become an internationally acknowledged, appealing area of medicine that comprises of translating the science from a laboratory bench to a hospital bedside. A significant part of translational medicine is centered around novel drug therapies. Translational medicine primarily enables us to conduct the best possible in vitro, animal and human studies to be able to treat common human diseases. People working in translational medicine design a number of pathways to help identify and test treatments that may be the most effective in humans.

It is the progression of a new idea that transforms into a new treatment in order to enhance our health and cope with illnesses. This field of medicine has been acknowledged the world over due to the role that it plays in making new treatments available faster to the general public. Translational medicine typically includes a number of scientific disciplines such as, genomics, proteomics, intellectual property rights (IPR), research funding, regulations and clinical study designs etc. This field of study seeks to equip professionals with the expertise & skills to carry out research related to the pharmaceutical & biomedical sector.

The Advanced PG Diploma in Translational Medicine conducted by the James Lind Institute is a comprehensive program that trains you to become a translational medicine professional.
