CHS 484 - Citizen Science and Research - Translational Research

Participate in a CHS Translational Research Team focused on solving a health problem in the community. Translational Teams are interdisciplinary teams tackling specific health problems and aim to shorten the time between discovery and the development of community and clinical practices while ultimately improving population health. You can assist the team in various ways that can range from data entry to working directly in the field with community partners, but this varies by team and semester. You may also be expected to attend Translational Team meetings and have the opportunity to engage with a variety of researchers, faculty, and staff. 

Translational Team opportunities may be available focusing on: 

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Cancer Prevention and Control
  • Child Language and Literacy
  • COVID-19
  • Improving Outcomes For Children With Cleft Palate
  • Integrated Rehabilitative Solutions For People With Movement Disorders
