Recently growing fields of research like robotics, Deep Learning and novel medical imaging technologies are developing promising concepts and potential products for healthcare and life sciences. State-of-the-art algorithms and discoveries from robust research could significantly improve safety, accuracy, efficiency and economic aspects of modern healthcare. However, the translation of research results into clinical practice remains a great challenge. Carefully evaluated findings fails to achieve widespread use for patients, medical staff and healthcare providers. Translation, the adaption and dissemination of knowledge from fundamental research into clinical products and interventional methods, first into clinical research and finally into healthcare practice (to the 'bedside'), has to overcome many structural, economic, and other boundaries. In this seminar, the students will work in small teams to identify potential barriers for research translation and develop concepts to overcome such barriers on recent publications and real clinical examples. Relevant aspects of regulatory affairs (Europe and USA), health care systems and innovation-driven research will be conveyed.
