Summary: Translational medicine is a popular term used among researchers in the biomedical community. But what does it mean? This session will describe what translational medicine is, clarify confusing terminology, and examine the field over the last several years. We will also discuss the roles librarians play in this area. Insight into translational medicine will help librarians understand their current and/or future contributions in this field. This presentation is designed for people who work with biomedical researchers or anyone who desires to learn about translational medicine.
