We created a new video and worked with Translation Together on a consensus paper to raise awareness of translational science and present the skills translational scientists use to transform medical discoveries into treatments and cures.
NCATS supports several training and career development programs that not only inspire students to become scientists but also help grow the translational science workforce. Read about one student’s journey to becoming a translational scientist.
NCATS is committed to increasing awareness and understanding of translational science through the development, demonstration, and dissemination of educational and training resources to stakeholder communities. The Center also aims to foster a highly skilled, creative and diverse translational science workforce by developing and supporting innovative translational science training methods and programs. This includes disseminating existing translational science education and training programs and modules, developing new concepts and resources based on areas of need, and engaging broad audiences — particularly those not already familiar with the subject — in translational science.
Engaging All in Translation
The NCATS Education Branch is committed to developing the tools, resources and programs needed to broadly increase understanding and awareness of, and engagement in, translation science as presented in the NCATS Strategic Plan.
