Knowledge Integration Processes in Translational Research: The Case of the Premature Birth Center
Translational research is applauded for its potential to move knowledge gained from the basic sciences to its application in clinical settings. Academic institutions, governments, and funders are interested in investing in such research initiatives. Yet, it has been shown that this type of collaborative research entails unique challenges. This presentation sheds light on those challenges by describing the formation of a new translational research center at Stanford University School of Medicine seeking to uncover the causes of premature birth.
