Specific goals and programs include:

Creating and enhancing education and training opportunities for patients, students, investigators, clinicians and community partners from multiple fields to conduct translational research

Creating infrastructure and fostering interdisciplinary collaborations required to advance translational research

Engaging the global community by creating and expanding educational programs, clinical collaborations and research projects in countries around the world

Increasing awareness, interest, and participation in translational research at Yale and disseminating research findings to the community

Providing community partners with the skills and resources to implement high quality translational research in community settings
