The NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) defines translation as the process of turning observations in the laboratory, clinic and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public — from diagnostics and therapeutics to medical procedures and behavioral changes. Because of the complexity of the translational research pipeline, multidisciplinary team science is recognized as an essential vehicle for the efficient advancement of translational research to produce meaningful health outcomes. To effectively engage in team science, translational scientists not only need strong discipline-specific knowledge and technical expertise, but also must be knowledgeable about essential skills and competencies for team-based translational science.
