Collaboration/Engagement Domain Task Force

Stakeholders are engaged in collaborations to advance translation.

This Domain Task Force focuses on:

  • Engaging stakeholder communities so they contribute meaningfully across the translational sciences spectrum.
  • Enabling team science to become a major academic model.
  • Ensuring that all translational science is performed in the context of collaborative team science and that shared leadership roles are the norm throughout the entire translational science process.
