To the Editor: In his Commentary, Dr Woolf1 commented on the confusion arising from using the term translational research to describe both T1 (moving research findings from “bench to bedside”) and T2 (the translation of results from clinical studies into everyday clinical practice and health decision making) and the need for greater emphasis on T2. We agree with both points.
