Process of translational research
Process of developing Translational Research

Translational research bridges basic sciences and clinical entities. Disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets are identified in basic experimental research by integrating clinical concepts. Validation in the clinical setting conveys significance to these findings, advancing knowledge and creating novel and improved therapeutic tools and strategies.


The overall goal of The Center of Excellence for Translational Neuroscience and Therapeutics (CTNT) is to serve as an incubator for the generation and dissemination of knowledge related to the neurobiology of clinically relevant disorders. CTNT strives to generate, facilitate, and coordinate multidisciplinary efforts to build bridges between basic science and clinical departments required for the development of novel and improved diagnostic and therapeutic tools and strategies.
