Support Core D: Research Translation
Dr. Candace (Spier) Bever, Postdoctoral Scholar in Entomology
The Research Translation Core (RTC) interacts with each research project and support core with the goal of identifying research information or products, whether conceptual or actual technologies, coming from the program in order to deliver those into the hands of appropriate end users. There is significant interaction between Core leadership and staff to communicate to research personnel the need for research translation, the need to jointly identify products for translation, and the techniques to most effectively communicate them to others. In particular, the RTC interacts with the Training Core to identify students who will participate in its activities and the Administrative Core to utilize its computer resources to accomplish its goals. In addition Core personnel are engaged with campus resources that specialize in technology transfer, research development and outreach, as well as partner with appropriate governmental agencies and resources, broader audiences, regulatory agencies, and the granting agency to assure that the products of this program are communicated in a timely and appropriate manner.
They can be complished by:
I. Identify information or research products for potential research translation from discussions with project investigators, core leaders, researchers or administrators.
II. Identify appropriate receptors for research information or products.
III. Develop tactics and strategies to advance research translation.
IV. Identify evaluation tools to assess the success of translation of research results or products from projects and cores.
V. Store, archive, and organize research translation information to enhance accessibility, retrieval and reporting. This aim will be accomplished with the assistance of the Administrative Core.
VI. Convey to faculty and students the value and importance of intellectual property issues in successful research translation.
