Implementation research is the scientific study of methods to promote the uptake of research findings. Often research projects focus on small scale pilot studies or laboratory based experiments, and assume that findings can be generalised to roll out into a practice based domain with few changes. Implementation research explores the challenges that are faced when generalising research findings 'in the real world', for example in the fields of healthcare or school based education. Recent technologies in biological research are used as valuable markers for disease detection and also the convention of preventative and curative medicine for future Prospects.
