Abstract

Those involved in translational medicine research in China admit that it has its challenges; but they know that their hard work is rewarded with the opportunity to make a real difference to patients. And with funding still on the rise despite a flagging economy, demand for skilled researchers is likely to continue to grow. That's because the field has been receiving special attention from China's central and regional governments in recent years. As a result, translational medicine—defined as a partnership between basic and clinical research to develop new pharmaceuticals, devices, and other medical products—presents many opportunities for researchers to build careers in biomedicine.
