Information for Patients

Our goal is to find connections or links to cancer diagnoses, so that in the future we can develop better treatments by collecting data and biospecimens on adult cancer patients, high-risk individuals and healthy controls.

What is translational research?

Translational research is the process of translating scientific findings into therapeutic treatments. Researchers study a disease in the lab and develop tools for physicians to try in clinical trials. During the trials, the physicians chart the effects in patients, which in turn impacts research efforts. This is often referred to as the bench-to-bedside approach because it helps patients receive new and improved treatments as quickly as possible.
