AdventHealth and Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute joined forces for the design and construction of the new Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes. The goal of translational research is to form a bridge between the research lab and bedside care. This means that while AdventHealth works directly with patients, Burnham scientists are in the lab studying disease processes.
