Brief BioMy background includes both basic science research and clinical studies, but it is my work as a clinician that drew me to translational research. I have seen many instances where clinicians have practiced in isolated silos, essentially cut off from the evidence that they need for proper treatment choices. The knowledge gained must be translated into an accessible and useful form for implementation. The TRP is a fertile area for research in design-based thinking, collaboration and innovation and one that has great potential to improve the present health care system. I would be most interested in participating in this type of real-world research.
