Translational science is devoted to understanding the scientific and operational principles underlying the translation of scientific knowledge into new approaches to improve the health of individuals and the public. Across the spectrum of translational science, the SC CTSI is focused on research involving people, research that includes clinical trials, community partnered research, implementation science, and dissemination.
