Why Choose a Career in Clinical Translational Research?
Clinical and translational science (and the pursuit of patient oriented research) is an entrepreneurial field that bridges the realm of basic research and the discipline of clinical medicine and population health in an effort to develop new, innovative solutions and treatments for human disease. The field of clinical translational research is broad, encompassing interventional clinical trials, outcomes and implementation research, health care delivery, clinical epidemiology, and behavioral research, offering a wealth of opportunities for contributing to the well being of society. The field is viewed by many important and influential funding, policy and research organizations including the National Institutes of Health, the Institute of Medicine, and the American Society of Clinical Investigation, as uniquely central to the critical mission of improving human health.
