Clinical Translational Medicine
Understanding mechanisms behind and developing new treatment for major public health challenges such as infectious heart, liver, and lung diseases, diabetes, and cancer involve research moving from bench side to clinic. It can be a challenging process, and the BRIDGE Clinical Translational Medicine course will cover examples on how to bridge the gap between basic and clinical research by introduction to general topics and challenges in clinical translational research as well as relevant real-life examples.
BRIDGE - Translational Excellence Programme
Upon completing the course, participants should be able to:
- Relate how thorough characterization (molecular, immunological, imaging) of the individual patient or patient’s samples may be used for direct selection of patient treatment/care
- Explain how information from biological experiments (in vitro and animal models) can be used as a platform for designing investigations in patients
- Discuss how biological experiments may lead to drug development
- Describe how to bring a preclinical drug to phase 1, basic requirements
- Describe Phase 1 -> 3 trials
- Plan a translational study with material from a clinical trial
- Integrate knowledge obtained from all other courses into translational clinical research
- Critically evaluate preclinical data - from a clinical point of view
- Generate novel ideas for clinical trials from preclinical observations
- Implement research results in clinical practice
- Solve unmet clinical needs/questions by designing the clinically relevant preclinical/ biological experiments
- Integrate basic biology into clinical knowledge
- Assess ethical considerations of how to implement new molecular tools and conduct studies with patients
- Understand the central aspects of clinical translational medicine and be able to discuss and communicate these to other scientists, clinicians, and the public
