Translational medicine attempts to go "from bench to bedside," i.e. from pure research to clinical applications. Dr. Solomon argues that, while "translational medicine" is regarded as a new idea in medicine, the need for translational research in medicine is not in fact new, but it has taken on new urgency and significance for two reasons: the perceived slowness of development of applications of basic research and the need for different research standards than those imposed by another recent paradigm, evidence-based medicine. Thus, translational medicine is best viewed as a response to the perceived shortfalls in both results and methods of mainstream contemporary medicine.
Miriam Solomon is Professor of Philosophy at Temple University. She is also Affiliated Faculty in the Women's Studies Program and serves on the Temple University Hospital Ethics Committee. Her research interests are in philosophy of science, philosophy of medicine, history of science, epistemology, gender and science and biomedical ethics. She is currently writing a book on evidence-based medicine, medical consensus conferences, narrative medicine and translational medicine, titled Making Medical Knowledge.
Sponsored by the College of Humanities & Social Sciences, Department of Philosophy & Religion, and the Hollybush Institute.
Guest curated by Anabelle Rodriguez, this interdisciplinary multimedia exhibition brings together recent and new work in traditional and experimental media that respond to the intrinsically related themes of immobility/mobility in a global context. Issues explored by this international group of selected artists include: geography & geology, ecological change, dream states, migration, transnationalism, accessibility, demobilization, cartography, modes and patterns of circulation.
Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are Monday - Friday, 10:00 am - 5:00 p, (Wednesday to 7:00 pm) and Saturday, 12:00 - 5:00 pm.
