Summary: Clinical and Translational Science - Principles of Human Research by Robertson and Williams is as much an important textbook as a guide for translational research in the current era. The book covers a whole breadth of topics written by well known authorities which are of practical relevance to the day-to-day conduct of translational research. Given that more and more translational research is being conducted in more and more developing countries, this book would also find relevance for efforts in developing countries. I am sure many will find this a welcome addition to the current array of books on research methodology, clinical trials and clinical epidemiology. This superbly written textbook full of relevant information and refreshing thoughts and ideas (will) be appreciated by students and teachers of medicine, clinical researchers and policy makers.Khalid Yusoff Professor of Medicine and Dean Faculty of Medicine Universiti Teknology MARA Shah Alam, Malaysia.
