Thirteen top European research institutes in life sciences—all within the framework of the EU-LIFE Alliance—have now shared their experiences, made recommendations and identified measures to promote translational research. Their conclusions appear in the September issue of the journal Trends in Molecular Medicine.
“We all have the same challenge: to provide scientific freedom to our researchers while also translating fundamental findings into innovative applications in medicine. By sharing experiences, thoughts and actions, we identified some good practises and guidelines that we want to share with the scientific community and relevant stakeholders,” explains Michela Bertero, chair of the Translational Research working group in EU-LIFE and head of the International and Scientific Affairs Office at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona, Spain.
