655 K Street, Suite 100, Washington, DC 20001

Following on a policy analysis and recommendations developed by Clinical Research Forum, this workshop recognizes the role and importance of broadly engaged, interdisciplinary teams in resolving many of the most daunting scientific problems in medical research.

The workshop will emphasize examples of successful approaches to team science, and how institutions have successfully managed, supported and advanced team collaborations (including with patient communities).This four-hour workshop will feature a keynote from Dr. Michelle Bennett, NIH, author of the “Broadly Engaged Team Science” blog, as well as successful examples of team science from the University at Buffalo, University of Miami, Case Western Reserve University, and Washington University in St. Louis.

Following panel discussion, participants will engage in moderated, roundtable discussions of how to address challenges and barriers to advancing team science at their own institutions.Topics will include ways to influence tenure and promotion success; the opportunities and perils of patient-driven research; successfully engaging the community; and creating collaborative opportunities between academic disciplines to solve clinical problems. Discussion will be focused on overcoming obstacles at academic health centers and replicating success within your own university and hospital environment.

At the end of the workshop, AAMC/GRAND is hosting a complimentary reception for workshop participants from 6pm to 7pm.
