Methods & Processes Domain Task Force

Goal: The scientific study of the process of conducting translational science itself enables significant advances in translation

This Domain Task Force focuses on: 

  • Enabling CTSA programs to function individually and together as a research engine transforming the way translational science is conducted across the nation to make tangible improvements in the health of individuals and the population. 
  • Rapidly translating CTSA-generated new knowledge and technologies into health interventions in real world settings 
  • Developing technologies, methods, data, analytics and resources that change the way translational scientists approach their work. 
  • Generating and curating comprehensive data sets or other resources that catalyze science
