From bench to bedside

Although we need to continue our efforts in basic sciences and research for the discovery of fundamental knowledge, we also need to focus on how this knowledge can improve human health. Often, it is not a single view or approach that will lead to discoveries, but rather the interface of disciplines that combine multiple fields of knowledge such as engineering, biology and medicine. An interdisciplinary approach, allowing for a new way of thinking, can benefit the future of human health and enable new therapies to reach the clinic more rapidly.
