A chasm has opened up between biomedical researchers and the patients who need their discoveries. Declan Butler asks how the ground shifted and whether the US National Institutes of Health can bridge the gap. 
Academic leadership: (with)holding the keys to translational medicine?
To promote effective translational medicine, academia must take the lead in creating a conducive environment for the first steps into translation, urge Roch Ogier and colleagues.
Introduction: What Is Translational Research
TLDR
A very practical and short definition of Translational Research could be the application of findings from Basic Research to patient, community and population care and to the advancement of the delivery of health services.
