Community & Collaboration

Fostering Team Science with Stakeholder Engagement

Working across CTSC institutions, Community and Collaboration (C&C) fosters team science through effective interdisciplinary teams with engaged stakeholders, in an effort to accelerate the translation of discoveries to patients and communities.

C&C resources range from online learning modules and tools to in-person consultations, and are intended to move research along the translational spectrum from idea to funded project and beyond. Consultation services are available for new and established investigators and interdisciplinary teams, operating within the five Cleveland CTSC institutions.
