Abstract Background and Objective: The translational research objective is to produce meaningful and applicable results that directly benefit the community. The objective of translational research is to move from traditional research discoveries rapidly and efficiently into practice. Translational research encourages and promotes multidisciplinary collaboration among clinicians, researchers, industry, policy makers, and other related stakeholders. It further incorporates the needs of the general public with communities being engaged to determine their requirements for health invention. It identifies and supports medical and health practices. Translational research is frequently classified by which stage of restatement (from beginning exploration to societal operation and impact) it falls into. Translational research is the process of turning compliances in the laboratory, clinic, and community into interventions that apply to the health of individualities, public from diagnostics, and to medical procedures as well as behavioral changes. Methods: This study adopted a qualitative research methodology based on Hill et al. consensual qualitative research (CQR) to build multiple case studies to acquire the information. We ion.opted to apply a modified method of CQR[9] based on multiple case studies. This is an emerging methodological approach in research. Results: Based on the 24 semi-structured interviews, these interviews were directly with researchers who carry out the research. Twenty-four voluntary researchers participated in the research and these semi-structured interviews were made into 24 case studies to be analyzed. Each case study was built based on the questions on methods of research. These were used to identify and build the tools for practicing translational research. Conclusion: There is a huge untapped potential for India in the area of translational research.
