Team Science-Guided Integrated Clinical and Research Ensembles

TeamScienceIntro_ImageTextSplitComponent
Despite recent advances in our nation’s biomedical research capability, its optimal potential to impact patient care and ultimately the health of our communities has not yet been fully realized. This shortcoming can be explained in part by the effect of impediments resulting from the current siloed organization of research enterprises, health systems, and the communities we serve. The Team Science-Guided Integrated Clinical and Research Ensembles Function (Ensemble Program) provides a translational science approach that helps breaks down these siloes and facilitates multidisciplinary collaboration.
TeamScienceEnsembles_ImageTextSplitComponent
Each team in this research program is called an “Ensemble,” because the team structure is likened to a musical Ensemble, in which different instruments (e.g., scientific disciplines), come together to make music (e.g., multidisciplinary collaborative research), that could not otherwise be accomplished by their individual performance. In 2015, the Ensemble concept was introduced as part of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program 3.0 grant to the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Ensemble Program

The Ensemble Program currently consists of 310 actively participating team members. Some investigators may be involved on more than one Ensemble team.
