Nobel laureate Sydney Brenner called for a “bedside to bench” approach to researchers at the AACR meeting this month. Biological and medical researches have been following a way from lab bench to hospital bed all the time. Input from clinical professionals to basic research is limited. This actually could be one of the most important reasons that translational research is extremely slow.
However, it is easier to say it than do it. This could be a slow process with both parts having to be patient enough. It is like talk to evolution people about molecular biology - macro world and micro world have different languages.
But this should benefit us and should be promoted. Go for it!
