A new paradigm to biomedicalresearch is being termed translationalresearch, which focuses on iterativefeedback loops between thebasic and clinical research domains toaccelerate knowledge translation from thebedside to the bench, and back again.Medical research may involve doingresearch on public health,biochemistry, clinical research,microbiology, physiology, oncology, surgeryand research on many other non-communicable diseases such as diabetesand cardiovascular diseases.
  4. 4. The increased longevity of humans overthe past century can be significantlyattributed to advances resulting frommedical research. Among the majorbenefits have been vaccines for measlesand polio, insulin treatment fordiabetes, classes of antibiotics fortreating a host of maladies , medicationfor high blood pressure, improvedtreatments for AIDS, statins and othertreatments for atherosclerosis, newsurgical techniques such asmicrosurgery, and increasinglysuccessful treatments for cancer.
