Translational cancer nursing research: What will your contribution be?

Mei Krishnasamy, Raymond J. Chan

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


Over the past decade, reference to "translational research" has increasingly dominated our research semantic. There are multiple definitions of translational research, but the most commonly understood is the transfer of biomedical knowledge from bench to clinical trial and from clinical trial to bedside as a component of usual care.1 Translational research, conceptualized as a series of distinct stages (T1 through to T5),2 reflects a continuum from development of knowledge in the basic sciences, to clinical testing of new treatments and their implementation into everyday practice and healthcare policy.2
