Translational research (also known as translational science or translation) is a study that aims to translate (convert) fundamental research findings into results that benefit humanity directly. The term is commonly used in science and technology, particularly biology and medicine. Translational research is a subset of applied research. Translational research is also known as bench to bedside research in the field of medicine. Laboratory science and clinical medicine come together in translational research to discover new therapies to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. Clinical trials are commonly related with translational research, which is the first stage in bringing a new treatment, medicine, or technology to the market for general use. One important explanation is faulty preclinical research, in which the usage and outcome of animal models are critical in bridging the translational gap from the lab to the clinic. As a result, choosing a validated and predictive animal model is critical for answering the clinical question.
