Redefining Commercial Translation Culture and Architecture in the Health Sciences

Spread the love

Commercial translation is the process by which basic scientific and clinical research is framed, structured, funded, and in some cases converted into translational research projects – all expanding the University’s research purpose and precipitating solutions that can be transferred to the marketplace to meet unmet market needs.  The primary purpose of commercial translation is to elevate the core missions of both the University and the respective industry partners who support their commercial translation pathways via funding and research-oriented insights.  Consequently, benefits of commercial translation to the university include: increasing research scope and scale, diversifying revenue sources, creating clinical product utility for human health and wellness, and societal benefit.
