Institute for Translational Research

Translational investigations are designed to “translate” scientific results into relevant outcomes and invite constituent communities to inform science's directions.

The Institute for Translational Research (ITR) in the College of Education, Nursing, and Health Professions was chartered by the University in 2010. It supports ENHP’s vision—to become a national model for the integration of education and health sciences with community engagement—by facilitating scholarly initiatives in collaboration with a broad range of local, regional, national, and international health and education partners

Translational investigations—those that are designed to “translate” scientific results into relevant outcomes and invite constituent communities to inform science's directions—are conducted through three distinct but integrated content centers that reflect the college's disciplinary foci: Three flexible learning and research spaces are currently affiliated with the ITR:
  • The Technology and Inquiry Laboratory
  • The Clinical Simulation Resource Center
  • The Esphyr Slobodkina Urquhart Reading Room
Together, these centers and laboratories provide a cohesive framework for enabling ENHP students, faculty members, and community partners to engage in impactful scholarship. In addition, the ITR provides support for internally and externally funded projects and co-sponsors popular annual events including ENHP Day and the Connecticut STEM Conference, thereby illustrating the college’s commitment to excellence through relevance.
