Community & Collaboration Core

Effective translation of discoveries to the population demands a broad-based connection between our communities and our clinical and translational research (CTR) enterprise. The Community and Collaboration Core aims to further build CTR capacity among community partners and our researchers, as well as to develop and evaluate novel ways to conduct bidirectional research.

Community Engagement Program

The Community Engagement Program aims to ensure that patients, communities, and other stakeholders are partners in the full spectrum of our translational research activities— effectively translating discoveries into the population by focusing on the broad-based connection between our communities and our CTR enterprise. Services include: grant writing support, technical assistance, liaison with Community Advisory Boards, town halls, and educational programs.
