Research in the Community
YCCI facilitates research in and with the community in a number of ways:
- By supporting educational programs, clinical collaborations and research projects in countries around the world.
- By supporting programs to increase awareness, interest and participation in translational research at Yale and disseminate research findings to the community.
The foundation for community-engaged research has been in place at Yale for almost 40 years via the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program, now National Clinician Scholars Program, which became a bedrock for the education of the next generation of investigators to conduct high-impact community-engaged research.
YCCI recognizes that broadening community participation in clinical research involves linking investigators directly to resources in the community.
