Drug-drug interactions (DDIs) are an important clinical and public health concern.

Further, older drugs that were not screened may have as-yet unidentified interactions. In this commentary, we review the importance of DDIs, and argue that a translational research approach is needed to produce clinically actionable information as well as generalizable biologic knowledge.
