Translational research refers to two distinct domains: T1 research, the “bench-to-bedside” enterprise of translating knowledge from the basic sciences into the development of new treatments; and T2 research, translating the findings from clinical trials into everyday practice.

The TRF will be an approximately 1000 square metre building within the AITHM Tropical Health research facility in Townsville.  It will support Translational Research. The building will house offices, open plan workstations, conference facilities, consultant rooms and back of house facilities.
