Bridging the preclinical-clinical boundary

The preclinical-clinical boundary is a key checkpoint in the translational pathway for research. It refers to the point at which preclinical evidence is considered sufficient to merit the move to first-in-human clinical studies, and represents a significant escalation in both resourcing and time, with a high risk of failure. Therefore there is a drive to ensure that the evidence base for progression into clinical studies is as robust and predictive as possible to maximise the chances of success and minimise risk of failure.
