Eval11 Session 779: Tracking for Translation: Novel Tools for Evaluating Translational Research Education Programs. 

11-21-2011 18:45

The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) incorporate innovative translational research training programs aimed at producing a diverse cadre of scientists who work collaboratively to rapidly translate biomedical research into clinical applications. Evaluation of these programs that emphasize team science, interdisciplinary research, and acceptance of a range of career trajectories challenge evaluators to develop outcome measures that go beyond simply counting traditional academic products, such as individual publications and grants. This presentation describes methods used at the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center to track, analyze and visualize the value and quality of translational research training. Using informatics and evaluation expertise, we developed tools that track products in a way that captures the essential qualities of translational research, such as multidisciplinary collaboration and teamwork rather than individual success. A method for visualizing the collaboration networks of successful multidisciplinary teams with Collexis Research Profiles is described.
