Translational medicine (TM) attempts to bring clinical and biomedical research practices and outcomes to patient care (“bench to bedside”). Informaticians have assisted clinicians and biomedical scientists in dealing with the large volumes of data derived from various high-throughput methodologies, developing disease models and drug design. This course will focus on the complexities of low, medium and high-throughput applications in translational medicine and train the students in solving translational medicine data management problems employing various informatics frameworks.
