Academia Europaea Position Paper on Translational Medicine published in leading open access journal

Academia Europaea Position Paper on Translational Medicine published in leading open access journal


The paper has been published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, following a Consensus Workshop on ‘Frontiers in Translational Medicine’ at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest last year.

About the paper

Translational Medicine (TM) is gaining prominence in medicine as a way to bring together basic researchers, clinicians, industry partners and policy decision makers to turn scientific knowledge into innovative therapies, medical procedures and diagnostics that benefit patients and healthcare systems, and become everyday best care practice. This multidisciplinary approach presents many challenges, and therefore Academia Europaea has launched a project to develop a model to facilitate and accelerate the utilisation of scientific knowledge for public and community benefit. 

The paper describes the development of the new model, including a renewed definition of Translational Medicine and a TM cycle that encompasses four elements: healthcare, science, knowledge and communication, all of which must be applied to achieve healthcare improvement. The paper serves as a basis for rethinking Translational Medicine, with the end result of enabling more efficient and cost-effective healthcare.
