Evaluators Group

The CTSA Program Evaluators Group provides ongoing support for the community of evaluators at the hubs.

This group focuses on: 

  • Encouraging cutting edge research on evaluation methods and processes relevant to the evaluation of translational science and the management of translational research.  

  • Providing the CTSA Program consortium with evaluation expertise in support of the development, implementation and utilization of the Common Metrics.

  • Exploring and developing cross-hub collaborations on topics of relevance to translational science evaluation.

  • Providing resources and data about the practices and policies of CTSA Program evaluations through goal-oriented workgroups and topically oriented research groups.

Third Tuesday of every other month (odd numbered months) from 1 – 2 p.m. ET.
