|Clinical and translational research spans much of the research performed across the University of Michigan in areas related to human health.
Translational research means research that applies discoveries generated in the laboratory to studies in humans (bench to bedside), or that speeds the adoption of best practices into community settings (bedside to practice).
T1 First phase of translational research, or Bench to Bedside, moves a basic discovery into a clinical application
T2 Bedside to Practice research provides evidence of the value of taking the basic discovery in the clinical setting
T3 Research that moves the evidence-based guidelines developed in phase 2 into health practice
T4 Research to evaluate the real world health outcomes of the original T1 development
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
