A map of how science becomes medicine

And the stations along the way.


No doubt you’ve heard the adage, “It takes a community to raise a child.” The same might be said for creating medical treatments and cures, except the community in this case is not your local neighbourhood, but the broader community of researchers, health care professionals, business leaders, policy experts and others. Each has a part to play in realizing the common goal of improved health and prosperity.
Some of the players work in close alignment, while others might provide expertise at critical stops along the way. But none move forward without the other and this is the vital role of OIRM, in aligning efforts and creating momentum for faster and more efficient progress in regenerative medicine.
This infographic shows a simplified view of this process, identifying the critical paths of development and key stops along the way.
