What is translational research?
Translational research is scientific research that helps to make findings from basic science useful for practical applications that enhance human health and well-being. . For example, in medicine it is used to "translate" findings in basic research quickly into medical practice and meaningful health outcomes.
It is a research where in the same study would include some "action steps." The researchers would partner with a community and ask for ideas about how their findings might apply there. Together, they would come up with an intervention plan that would also include scientific evaluation of its effectiveness
In short, it is a bridge between discoveries to delivery.
