Centre for Translational Physiology

The Centre for Translational Physiology is a central facility at the University of Otago, Wellington, designed to forge world-class research programmes that will accelerate the transfer of clinically-relevant scientific knowledge.


Translation of non-clinical research results into real world clinical applications is a major challenge for biomedical researchers. With increasing sub-specialisation in both medical and basic biomedical disciplines, such knowledge transfer can become fragmented unless concerted efforts are made to promote their integration. A hallmark of those involved in the CTP is a willingness to collaborate on projects which utilise both scientific and clinical expertise. This is in recognition of the importance we believe translational physiological research provides in generating answers to clinical problems.
