Translational Research at the CCCC
Translational research has the task of transferring results from basic research into preclinical development programs and subsequently into the clinic. The new approaches to prevention, diagnostics and therapy are first introduced into medical practice in clinical trials.
The goal is to continuously and sustainably improve the treatment options for the patients concerned. To achieve this, physicians, scientists and researchers from other disciplines work closely together.
