A brilliant dawn and an even brighter future for Annals of Translational Medicine

Giuseppe Lippi

Abstract

Although no universally agreed connotation exists for “translational medicine”, and this concept means many different things to different people, a reasonable definition is that endorsed by the European Society for Translational Medicine (EUSTM), which defines translational medicine as a science aimed at “enhancing research and development of novel and affordable diagnostic tools and treatments for clinical disorders affecting the global population” (1).
