Translational research in health service and public health settings focuses on facilitating the adoption, implementation, and sustainability of evidence-based programs, policies and practices in community settings. Our Framework leads you through the engaged vision of the ISU Translational Research Network, which integrates ISU Faculty and Departments, Extension and Outreach, Community Campus Partnership for Health, and Community Partners to promote the dissemination of Evidence-Based programming and support for communities through applied outreach and service learning.
The Community Engagement Collective approach to translation emphasizes transdisciplinary partnerships between researchers and community stakeholders to enable shared learning and mutually beneficial collaboration.
