Translational Medicine is the process of turning biological discoveries into drugs and/or medical devices that can help patients better, faster, and cheaper.  In the case of drug discovery and development, translational research typically refers to the translation of laboratory-based research into therapies for patients.  In the case of medical devices, translational process focuses on the translation of problems observed at bedside into device therapies for patients. This may be couched at "bedside to bench" definition.

In this program we will discuss formation of a company, manufacturability, regulatory, and reimbursement strategies all within the context of translational medicine.
