A major challenge in biomedical and health research is how to ensure that research findings are effectively and efficiently translated from "bench to bedside".

Previous studies suggest that it takes 17 years, on average, for new discoveries to be put into practice – but despite the recurrence of that number, different studies measure rather different concepts of translation "gaps".
