- To accelerate translation, researchers need access to a broad range of data from a variety of sources (electronic health records, imaging, genetics, behavioral, etc.). These sources manage and store data differently, which creates the need for standardization. The Informatics Common Metric, which is in its second year, addresses the need to harmonize data across the CTSA Program. This will enhance

- June 28, 2018It takes an average of 17 years for medical research to be turned into real world practice. You don’t have to be a scientist to know that’s a really long time. The total percentage of interventions that are actually translated into practical application isn’t great either – only 14%. Much of this delay is the result of a big gap at the very last stage of translation, where academic knowledge is
- May 21, 2018After decades of mounting concerns about the declining physician-scientist population, a recently published study from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) revealed some good news: most MD-PhD program graduates continue their careers in science. But the study also had some bad news: there still aren’t enough MD-PhD graduates to meet workforce needs, highlighting the importance of
