Translational Medicine:
Tools And Techniques


Key Features

 Includes detailed and standardized information about the techniques and tools used in translational medicine

 Provides specific industry case scenarios

 Explains how to use translational medicine tools and techniques to plan and improve infrastructures and capabilities while reducing cost and optimizing resources


 Translational Medicine: Tools and Techniques provides a standardized path from basic research to the clinic and brings together various policy and practice issues to simplify the broad interdisciplinary field. With discussions from academic and industry leaders at international institutions who have successfully implemented translational medicine techniques and tools in various settings, readers will be guided through implementation strategies relevant to their own needs and institutions. The book also addresses regulatory processes in USA, EU, Japan and China. By providing details on omics sciences techniques, biomarkers, data mining and management approaches, case reports from industry, and tools to assess the value of different technologies and techniques, this book is the first to provide a user-friendly go-to guide for key opinion leaders (KOLs), industry administrators, faculty members, clinicians, researchers, and students interested in translational medicine.


  practitioners and researchers working in biomedical research, health center administrators, health professions associations, life sciences industry professionals in pharma, biotech, medical instruments, diagnostic companies, CROs, research reagent Suppliers, IT service providers, data management companies, senior to junior level academic faculty members, post graduate students and scholars, public health professionals, regulatory affairs professionals
