The Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI)in collaboration with the South Carolina Clinical & Translational Research Institute (SCTR)will begin offering a Team Science in Clinical Researchonline course.
As the volume of scientific knowledge has increased over time, it has become increasingly difficult for any single individual to have deep expertise in all areas of science necessary for solving today’s complex health issues. Addressing today’s complex problems requires the high degree of cross-disciplinary collaboration, referred to as “Team Science”. This course will offer practical guidance for how to best engage in this emerging discipline.
An emphasis will be placed on the competencies and processes associated with the concepts of team science in translational. Solving complex societal problems (e.g., environment, poverty, and cancer, health care) requires the integration of specialized knowledge bases. However, as the volume of scientific knowledge has increased over time, it has become increasingly difficult for any single individual to have deep expertise in all needed areas of science. Addressing today’s complex problems requires the high degree of cross-disciplinary collaboration, referred to as “Team Science”. This course offers practical guidance about how best to engage in team science to: pursue complex scientific questions, work effectively with team members, and produce high impact research outcomes that help meet society’s needs.
There are no texts that need to be purchased for this course. All course materials and readings are provided within the course online.
At the end of this course students will be able to:
Analyze the role of conflict in the life cycle of a scientific team.
