Translational research is a dynamic process applying science to practice and practice to science.
Serrano, Anderson, and Chapman-Novakofski assert that translational research involves not only “bench to bedside” activity but “bench to behavior” outcomes that encompass education, policy, and community area. For example, findings of how people learn effectively are applied to develop learner-centered nutrition education strategies and programs. Evaluation of these nutrition education programs informs researchers how people process the education to learn effectively. (J Nutr Educ Behav 2007)
