Institute for Translational Research

The Institute for Translational Research furthers public scholarship and translational research through substantive paradigms, rigorous methods, and authentic partnership reciprocity. Our initiatives "translate" scientific results into relevant outcomes for community and the professions.

We aim to:

  • Promote scholarship of engagement and application in community, for community
  • Foster internal and external funding through effective grants administration
  • Support faculty development and intellectual contributions to the professions

The Institute for Translational Research supports distinctive yet integrated content centers:

The Center for Health, Care, and Well-being icon and The Center for Leadership in Education and Health icon and The Center for Learning and Professional Education icon

  • Conduct research that will advance outcomes in health, care, and well-being
  • Create outreach and internship opportunities to prepare the next generation of scientists, clinicians, and educators
  • Refine educational programs that further the professions 

THE CENTER FOR LEADERSHIP IN EDUCATION AND HEALTH
