What is translation?

 

Translational research represents the interface between basic research and clinical development. The goal is to enable the latest findings from basic research to lead to new therapies or diagnostic procedures for patients in the shortest of times. At the same time, questions that arise during the clinical practice are fed back to basic research for systematic analysis.

 

 

 

TWINCORE – the twin core of basic research and clinical practice

MHH medical professionals and basic researchers of the HZI work side by side at TWINCORE in Hanover.
The researchers are investigating mechanisms that play a role in the interaction between pathogen and host. Together with the clinical staff they develop new diagnosis methods, vaccines and therapies for patients.

 

The goal is to enable the latest findings from basic research to lead to new therapies or diagnostic procedures for patients in the shortest of times. At the same time, researchers are looking for answers provided by the clinical work.

 

A further key component of this bridge spanning research and practice are the approval procedures required for clinical applications. The researchers at TWINCORE are further supporting the development of new strategies to combat infectious diseases by assisting in risk assessment for the clinical trials.
