    Translational Research

    A gap exists between the pace of clinical, scientific, and technological advancements and the successful translation of this science into effective medical and health practices at the bedside, in the clinic, and in the community. 

    The AAMC helps our member institutions to translate biomedical research findings into clinical care guidelines so that patients have quicker access to medical breakthroughs.  

    Outreach and Engagement

    Research on Care Community (ROCC) Group 

    This online learning collaborative includes researchers and clinical providers interested in translational research, application of big data, health services research, and implementation science. ROCC has over 1,000 members affiliated with approximately 250 leading medical schools, teaching hospitals, and healthcare organizations. 

    Implementation Science Awards

    These multi-year grants, awarded through The Patrick and Catherine Weldon Donaghue Medical Research Foundation, funded implementation research projects that facilitated collaborations between researchers, health systems leaders, and community organizations to develop and deploy interventions for improving quality, safety, equity, and system effectiveness.
