Swisstransmed

SwissTransMed is a network of platforms to translate scientific discoveries to practical clinical applications and treatments, and vice versa. Each platform includes basic and clinical scientists, engineers, clinicians and students in all relevant fields, who work together to develop disease models, new diagnostic approaches, prevention strategies and therapies (“from bench to bedside”). Platforms were funded from autumn 2013 until summer 2017.

Basic and clinical scientists, engineers, clinicians and students of all relevant fields can work together on a translational platform and jointly contribute to developing disease models, new diagnostic approaches, prevention and therapy. Ultimately, translational research improves clinical management of patients. Engaging experts with diverse backgrounds in clinical research increases the quality and efficacy of all phases of translational research. The SwissTransMed research platforms will foster training of a next generation of clinical and translational researchers.
