Translational Research Center
Jung-Min Ahn, MD, PhD
To improve human health, scientific discoveries must be translated into practical applications. Such discoveries typically begin at “the bench” with basic research - in which scientists study disease at a molecular or cellular level - then progress to the clinical level, or the patient's “bedside”. Scientists are increasingly aware that this bench-to-bedside approach to translational research is really a twoway street. Basic scientists provide clinicians with new tools for use in patients and for assessment of their impact, and clinical researchers make novel observations about the nature and progression of disease that often stimulate basic investigations.

Translational Research Center has established to encourage and provide support for novel translational cardiovascular research. Physicians and scientists play a crucial role in the continuum of cardiovascular research that brings together the progress in the laboratory and the progress in the clinic. Translational Research demands an intense interaction between investigators with diverse backgrounds. It will accelerate cardiovascular research in the early stages of translation to the clinical setting and transfer of findings from the laboratory to clinical application. The purpose of Translational Research Center is to support research that shows high promise for translating basic biomedical knowledge to diagnosis or new treatments and, ultimately, to prolong and enhance life in the field of cardiovascular disease. It also supports activities that impact the environment in which translational research is conducted. Translational Research depends heavily on innovative new technologies to overcome the limitation of current devices in interventional cardiology. It also supports the human clinical trials assessing the outcomes of new coronary devices.
