Translational medicine facilitates the use of the results of research in medical practice. In the context of the rapidly growing amount of new information, it is increasingly difficult task. Scientists and clinicians therefore need specialized tools to quickly and efficiently search and disseminate evidence relevant to their disciplines. Web 2.0 is a platform which can provide the right tools.

This paper gives examples of current information resources and services aimed at promoting the translation of research findings into clinical practice, using the Web 2.0 tools, and also presents a newly developed information resource from this category. The work was partly supported by the project 1M06014 of the Ministry of Education CR and the research plan AV0Z10300504.

Keywords: information resources, information services, Web 2.0, EBM, translational medicine
