There are three types of research are applied. First, T1 research tests findings from basic research for clinical effect and/or applicability. Second, T2 research tests new interventions in controlled environments to form the basis for clinical application and evidence-based guidelines. Third, T3 research explores ways of applying recommendations or guidelines in general practice.
Example: Study of cancer therapy

Applied science is intended not to gain information for knowledge but to solve practical problems of the real world. We might argue that the applied scientist's objective is to better the human condition.
Example: Treating or curing a Specific Disease
