Translational Research Frameworks and their Application in Public Health
Join us on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019, 1pm ET for a FREE live webinar

Public health agencies are interested in moving interventions through the stages of translation from basic to applied research, and eventually population impact. Those evaluating the progress of research through the translational research process may use different frameworks, depending on whether the object of study is a clinical treatment, a policy, a public health intervention or an economic impact.

This webinar will feature two presenters from federal public health agencies working along the continuum of translational research. Each will discuss the frameworks they use and how these have been or will be used (e.g., to inform evaluation, programmatic efforts, and funding decisions).

Kristi Pettibone, of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National institutes of Health (NIH) will discuss NIEHS’s Translational Research Framework ( and how they are encouraging grantees and program staff to use the framework for planning and evaluation purposes.

Lianne Estefan, of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will discuss their use and adaptation of CDC’s Science Impact Framework ( to evaluate programmatic efforts.

Attendees will benefit from learning about different frameworks and how they are being used to understand translational processes. A resource list will be provided to participants summarizing some of the commonly used frameworks.

Co-sponsored by: the American Evaluation Association (AEA) Internal Evaluation TIG and Translational Research Evaluation TIG, and the Association for Clinical and Translational Science (ACTS) Evaluation SIG.
