Abstract: [EN]The incorporation of full-time researchers into hospitals has been identified as one of the strategies to bridge the so-called bed-bench gap and foster translational research. This article explores to what extent the incorporation of researchers into Spanish public hospitals helped to foster translational research. We examine the FIS/Miguel Servet Program’s contribution to the three factors that characterize translational research: i) the relationship between clinical and basic researchers; ii) the transfer of scientific knowledge from basic research to clinical practice, and iii) the generation of biomedical research questions based on clinical practice. Data were obtained through a survey of researchers and of research group leaders and heads of departments and centers where these researchers worked. Results show how public policy actions to provide human resources in R&D specifically targeted to the incorporation of basic researchers within the essentially clinical hospital environment play an important role in the promotion of translational research.
