Translational medicine encompasses biological systems and the development of powerful tools that can be applied both in the laboratory and at the bedside of the patient offer unprecedented perspectives to advance knowledge of human disorders in this bi-directional translational context.

Translational medicine seeks to coordinate the use of new knowledge in clinical practice and to incorporate observations and clinical questions into scientific hypotheses in the laboratory. It also facilitates the characterization of disease processes and the generation of new hypotheses based on direct human observation.

Patients and patient organizations will play a very important role in ensuring continuous communication, which is essential for success, between the various actors in this field.

The need for Translational Medicine is due to; the rapid increase in life expectancy in most world populations, which has resulted in an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases. Treatments can be expensive and lengthy. The continued increase in prevalence has resulted in projected growth in health care spending. Improved diagnosis has increased the treatments required for newly identified (often rare) diseases.

A final goal of translational medicine is to assist patients with the faster development of new diagnostic methods, medicinal products, and new medical knowledge for the treatment of disease, allowing people to access health care at a reasonable cost.

Translational medicine, by improving the efficiency of biomedical discovery and application, instead of trying to modify existing processes within disciplines, has come to serve as a unifying concept in the field of biomedical research, increasingly complex, specialized and fragmented. . It has emerged from the synthesis of information obtained from multiple research sources.

Thanks to this approach, human biology and disease are better understood, and therapies are identified and tested more quickly, resulting in better treatments and patient outcomes.
