Bigger, faster & better: enabling the next era of translational medical research

With new sources of Federal Government funding now available, medical research will come under growing pressure to demonstrate its practical value to health.

Will big data, better clinical trials and bold advances in research technology platforms result in better returns on investment - both in terms of public health and the economy?

How can barrier-crossing networks like Sydney Health Partners help enable more effective and frequent translation of research evidence into clinical practice?
