Translational Cancer Research

What is translational cancer research?

Translational cancer research, also termed ‘bench-to-bedside', aims to efficiently translate research findings from the laboratory into clinical practice for rapid impact on cancer treatment and outcomes. 

The Cancer Institute NSW currently supports translational cancer research through Translational Program Grants, an Accelerated Translational Research Grant, and Translational Capacity Building Grants. These large grants support multi-disciplinary research teams to rapidly translate cancer research into clinical programs and policy.
