Mar13 From Molecule to Patient: Building Translational Bridges Not Walls
“ From Molecule to Patient ” -- What a lovely idea! The concept of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics as an important medical discipline has long been said to be the building of bridges from basic science to clinical practice. This theme of “From Molecule to Patient” makes us realize again th... Read More..
Feb19 ACCOuNT-ing for African Americans in Pharmacogenomics
The United States population is rich in racial and ethnic diversity. This diversity contributes to the fabric of our country in a myriad of ways and projections are for a quarter of the population being non-white by mid-century.

Feb08 Wondering About Wearables?
Consumer-oriented wearable devices, which commonly take the form of a wristwatch, have allowed us to quantify our daily movements with fine detail, and even examine the quality of our sleep. But beyond our personal, health-oriented curiosities, wearable devices and the related digital readouts ha... Read More..
Jan15 The Periodic Table of Translation
2019 is the 150th anniversary of periodic table, which transformed chemistry by placing it on firm scientific footing. We envision the Biomedical Data Translator doing the same for translational science. A principal stumbling block in translation is the compartmentalized nature of the tremen... Read More..
