Translational research bridges the gap between scientific research and patient care, bringing about clinical benefits in the most efficient way. This may advance current practice or enable innovative discoveries to be efficiently transferred into practical tools to prevent, diagnose and treat human disease.
Translational research is a dynamic and evolving process to continually improve healthcare and should not stop once the technology is at the patient's bedside. It can be thought of as taking a scientific breakthrough from ‘laboratory bench to hospital bedside and back to bench’ to be further improved. For example, it may help to explain why some treatments stop working or why side-effects may occur.
These grants show our commitment to supporting innovative 'bench-to-bedside' research which can improve the health and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease.
The grant selection process is rigorous with a typical success rate in previous years of 1 in 5.
