Translational Research

Cover Image - Translational Research, Volume 240, Issue

Translational Research (formerly The Journal of Laboratory and Clinical Medicine) delivers original investigations in the broad fields of laboratory, clinical, and public health research. Published monthly since 1915, it keeps readers up-to-date on significant biomedical research from all subspecialties of medicine. Interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary in scope, it aims to expedite the translation of scientific discovery into new or improved standards of care and promotes a wide-ranging exchange between basic, preclinical, clinical, epidemiologic, and health outcomes research. It encourages submission of studies describing preclinical research with potential for application to human disease, and studies describing research obtained from preliminary human experimentation with potential to refine the understanding of biological principles underpinning human disease.


The Central Society for Clinical and Translational Research is one of the oldest and largest academic medical societies in the Midwest. 

Our Vision: Promote a vibrant, supportive community of multidisciplinary, clinical, and translational medical researchers to benefit humanity.  

Our Mission: Develop and support communication, collaboration, and career development within a community of medical researchers in the central U.S. and beyond.

Members are academic leaders of medical schools in the Midwest; however, CSCTR has active members throughout the U.S. and Canada. The society publishes the monthly Translational Research: The Journal of Laboratory and Clinical Medicine and holds an Annual Meeting that contains cutting-edge papers, posters, lectures, and state-of-the-art forums.  You are encouraged to apply for membership. Membership is by nomination only.
