The country's first national-level translational medicine center will be established in Shanghai to promote health benefits for individuals and communities.

Translational medicine, also known as translational science, is a discipline within biomedical and public health research. It focuses on translating laboratory findings into diagnostic tools, medicines, procedures, policies and education to improve the health of individuals.

So far, the translational medicine research center has been listed into the country's high-tech industry development plan, and has already been approved by the National Development and Reform Commission. Construction work will start in 2014.
