The Office of Translation to Practice (OTP) is housed in the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences at Mayo Clinic. Established in 2015, the office was tasked with developing and managing novel tools, mechanisms, and processes to facilitate and accelerate the translation of products, such as drugs, biological agents, and medical devices, into practice. Since its inception, the OTP is credited with creating valuable services through several strategic alliances and active scientific and project management involvement. The OTP continues to move forward to assist Mayo Clinic physicians and scientists to interact effectively with internal and external collaborators to advance translational projects that will benefit patients. Best practices, innovations, and nascent successes of the OTP are presented and discussed herein.
