Program Description

The Team Science Program (TSP) augments the translational mission by continuing to develop new theoretical and evidence-based tools to improve, assess, and evaluate the capacity of interdisciplinary and translational science teams to effectively combine team members’ diverse expertise. The UCLA CTSI’s four geographically separate institutions with distinct missions and cultures—Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, Los Angeles Biomedical Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed), and UCLA—are an ideal test-bed for implementing and assessing boundary-spanning team science and community-engaged research.

Program Aim

The aim of the Team Science Program is to foster translational innovation, advance the scientific base for community engagement and team science, and ultimately improve health and health care in Los Angeles County and beyond. To accomplish this aim, TSP will offer:

  • a multifaceted program that supports team formation
  • novel education and training in the practice of team science
