Abstract

This paper summarizes the current status of the Translational Research in Australia and an ideal design of Japanese National Translational Research Supporting Center (NTRSC). This summary is based on an investigative report for Australian Translational Research as a Japanese national delegate. The objective of this investigation was to elucidate basic requirements and financial basis for national translational research infrastructure. The investigation was carried out through previous information exchange, having discussion with representatives of major Australian facilities, and field studies as a Japanese national delegate. We discussed the details with representatives of each facilities having pre-collected information of both parties. The Australian definition of translational research was clear and reasonable than the Japanese one. The Australian inftastructure for translational research was constructed with care and works effectively. This paper elucidates the important features of the ideal infrastructure for translational research facilities. With these considerations in mind, this paper discusses an ideal infrastructural design of Japanese NTRSC.
