  • Increased ability to track movement of research through the translational spectrum
  • More active management of the translational bridging by program staff to ensure that more science has an ultimate impact on human health
  • More paths for researchers to see how their research might evolve and move through the translational research process
  • Increased ability to code research projects using these modified categories and give more recognition to research that moves through several iterations in the fundamental research area
