Translational medicine might have many different interpretations depending on where you stand, but one thing is certain: it is a phrase that is now front and center in biomedical research around the globe. Touching many different fields of research, the intention of translational medicine is that basic research is “translated” rapidly into clinical applications that help patients by improving diagnosis, treatment, and follow up. This supplement to Science presents an overview of just some of the translational research being undertaken at China Capital Medical University. It covers a range of research areas, namely neuroscience, internal medicine, ophthalmology and otolaryngology, surgery and rehabilitation medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, and preventative medicine and clinical diagnosis.
