Ever wonder how scientific discoveries make it to your doctor’s office?
Translational science orchestrates each stage of that journey, from the moment of discovery to improvements in health. In Florida, the University of Florida, Florida State University and University of Miami collaborate as part of a national network working together to accelerate discoveries toward better health. The network is funded by the National Institutes of Health’s Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) program, which is led by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences. Check out the video and resources below to learn about the roles you can play.
